Vodafone Warriors managing director Jim Doyle has today responded to a media report linking Kiwi international Kieran Foran with a move to the club next season.

Commenting on a story published in Sydney's Daily Telegraph, Doyle said he had a personal relationship with Foran and had maintained contact with him for a number of years.

“I’ve talked to Kieran more regularly this year to offer support as he dealt with personal challenges he was facing. His wellbeing has been the focus,” he said.

“When Kieran decides he’s ready to resume his playing career, we’ll certainly be interested in talking to him further.”
