Melbourne superstar Josh Addo-Carr has signed with a new management company to help him secure a move to a Sydney NRL club at season’s end.
He’s joined Crown Sports Management, led by well-known agent Mario Tartak and based in Sydney.
The 25-year-old State of Origin winger went through a messy break-up with his former agent Chris Orr earlier this year and the chaos was hampering his ability to find a way to move home to the NSW capital.
Addo-Carr wants to move back to Sydney for family reasons, and the Storm have agreed to consider releasing him from his contract if the club can secure a suitable replacement for his talents.
South Sydney and Canterbury have been floated as possible homes for the NSW Blues and Indigenous All Stars speedster.
It had been speculated Addo-Carr wasn’t happy with the money he’s earning at Melbourne after learning what some other wingers in the competition were pocketing.
During All Stars camp in February, he told foxsports.com.au he was considering representing himself in contract negotiations going forward, having had poor experiences with his former agent.
His Melbourne teammate Christian Welch is one NRL player who chooses to represent himself and a number of others have started doing it too.
On Thursday night as Addo-Carr tore the Sydney Roosters apart Crown Sports Management revealed his acquisition on their Instagram page.
They also represent his NSW teammate Damien Cook, who he could end up playing with at the Rabbitohs next year.
Addo-Carr is also friends with other South Sydney players like Cody Walker and Latrell Mitchell.
