Hull KR are believed to be close to confirming a deal to sign Josh Drinkwater from Catalans Dragons.

The Robins have held protracted negotiations with the player and his representatives for the past few weeks and reports say the Australian is poised to finally put pen to paper with the Super League side.

The deal has yet to go through as Hull have been struggling to work out the finer details of Drinkwater's contract amid claims the two parties were some way apart in their salary demands but now the Hull Daily Mail says an agreement has been reached.

It's thought Drinkwater will be unveiled as Rovers' latest signing ahead of the 2019 season and the half-back is set to team up with his his new side on January 2.
