The Gold Coast Titans remain 'hopeful' Scott Prince will stay with them and reject the chance to join Super League's Hull FC.
The 32-year-old half-back has been offered a three-year deal by the Airlie Birds and Prince's agent, Steve Robinson, has urged Hull to stay patient while he negotiates the player's exit.
Gold Coast expect Prince - who still has 12 months to run on his current deal - to make a final decision in the coming days, and they have not given up hope of him remaining in Australia.
"We will support Scott no matter what decision he makes and I expect he will make it in the next few days," Titans chief executive David May told the Hull Daily Mail.
"Scott has a lot of things to weigh up and I don't know what the outcome will be. He is our current captain and a very important player for us.
"But Gold Coast Titans don't boast the history Hull FC have. Scott joined us at the height of his career and has given us good service.
"He hasn't given any indication yet as to what his decision will be. We remain hopeful of keeping Scott here."
