Triple M understands hot Cowboys rookie Kalyn Ponga will sign a five-year deal worth three million dollars with the Newcastle Knights.

Ponga is only 18-years old and it will be the richest deal for a teenager in NRL history.

The deal will start from 2018 but the Knights and Cowboys are having a discussion about him joining the struggling club next year and North Queensland are open to negotiation.

It’s believed Newcastle beat six NRL clubs including the Broncos, Titans, Dragons, Parramatta, Bulldogs, and Storm to secure the young gun.

Ponga's only played two NRL games, making his debut for the Cowboys in the 2016 finals series. His preferred positions are fullback and five-eighth. Watch the video below.

It's been a bad day for the Cowboys. Earlier, Origin and Australian Test forward Ben Hannant announced his retirement due to a chronic knee injury.
