Garth Brennan and the Gold Coast Titans have sounded out Raiders centre Joey Leilua as the perfect player to replace Jarryd Hayne, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Hayne is reportedly seeking a release from the Titans for a one-year deal with the Eels, which will see his salary cut in half.
Should Hayne be granted a release, the Titans are seeking an 'unwanted' Joey Leilua.
The Raiders need to move on at least one big name as salary cap pressure mounts.
The club have been shopping Leilua around to rival clubs in an effort to become salary cap compliant for 2018.
