The New Zealand Warriors could be set to part ways with star halfback Shaun Johnson, once his contract finishes at the end of next season.
As it stands, Johnson will be able to hit the open market as of November 1 and it seems as though that could possibly be the best option to play in the NRL in 2020.
Warriors CEO Cameron George spoke with the NZ Herald, and didn't do anything to quash suggestions Johnson could leave the club.
"The club are open-minded about the future and we'll talk to Shaun and his management when he gets back from overseas about the future," George told the NZ Herald.
"We're very open-minded and with any recruitment decisions it's about the team and the club first. But whilst we're being open-minded about the future, we're not going to be scared to make big calls on any player.
"We want to win the competition and we'll be doing everything recruitment-wise to get the best people in the club to do so.
"We are not scared about making any big calls on our roster because we want to win this competition and everyone's always under review."
