Parramatta Eels five-eighth Corey Norman revealed he is close to extending his stay with the NRL outfit. 

Norman, 25, is off-contract at the end of the 2016 season but said a new deal could come as soon as this week.

The former Brisbane Broncos man would be the Eels' first signing since being sanctioned for breaching the salary cap.

"I spoke to my manager this morning and they're sorting something out pretty soon. Hopefully it comes along quick," Norman said on Tuesday.

"He called me the other day and said they were going to get something done this week."

He added: "I like the Eels.

"I like [Eels coach] Brad [Arthur] and the coaching staff and all the boys here. My main priority is to stay here first and if they can get a deal, I'll leave it up to them."


Norman also spoke about former Parramatta star Jarryd Hayne who on Monday announced he quit NFL to play for the Fiji Rugby Sevens team at the Olympic Games later this year.

When asked if Hayne could return to the NRL next year, Norman said:  "I wouldn't have a clue with him. I don't even think he knows what he's doing yet.

"We'll just leave it up to him and see what he does."
