Salford head coach Iestyn Harris's future is in doubt and he is unlikely to take charge against Catalans on Sunday, reports BBC Radio Manchester.

The 39-year-old former dual-code Wales international is reportedly in talks over leaving.

Last month owner Marwan Koukash said Harris's job was safe following the arrival of World Cup-winning Australia coach Tim Sheens as director of rugby.

Salford lost at Hull KR on Tuesday, their 10th defeat in 11 games.

Harris took over at AJ Bell Stadium in April 2014 replacing Brian Noble on a two-year deal and guided the club to a 10th place finish last season.

The Red Devils look likely to miss out on a top eight place again this season as they sit 11th, five points off eighth-placed Hull KR with five games to go.

It has been a troubled few weeks at Salford with Kevin Locke resigning,Tony Puletua saying he is taking legal action against them and Koukash in a dispute with Salford City Council over money.
