Clubs from both sides of the world are believed to be lining up bids for banned Giants forward Brett Ferres.

The 29-year-old England forward was this week placed on the transfer list following a suspension for allegedly having an affair with the wife of a teammate.

Ferres signed a Huddersfield Super League contract extension back in May, rejecting approaches from the Australian NRL.

But now a possible switch to the southern hemisphere could be on the cards, with Sydney Roosters and Newcastle Knights weighing up a move for the back rower.

Super League rivals Wigan Warriors and Widnes Vikings are also believed to have expressed an interest in Ferres, particularly after his impressive performances for England in their recent 2-1 Test-series triumph over New Zealand.

At the same time, Salford and Hull FC were rumoured to be considering making a move as soon as it was announced Ferres had been suspended by Huddersfield, pending an internal club investigation into his conduct, and that could put them at the head of the queue to secure his signature.
