Leeds Rhinos hooker James Segeyaro will remain with the club despite interest from teams in the NRL, chief executive Gary Hetherington has said.

Segeyaro, 26, joined the Rhinos from Penrith during the 2016 season and scored six tries in 10 appearances.

He is contracted to the Headingley club until the end of 2018.

Hetherington said: "There has been interest from NRL clubs, but I have explained that we are not prepared to consider a release or transfer."
