Mitchell Pearce To Become A Newcastle Knight

Following news earlier today that Jarryd Hayne is set to return home to the Parramatta Eels, it now looks as though Mitchell Pearce will be a Knight next season.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Pearce has all but agreed to a $4 million, four-year deal.

There are reportedly also big incentives for Pearce to lead the Knights to premiership glory.

This comes after a lot of speculation about Pearce's future, with him also linked to the Sharks and the Sea Eagles.

Cooper Cronk signed with the Roosters several weeks ago, and the addition of the star half has meant that Pearce has sought a release from the club to pursue other options.
