James Graham has been criticised this season by media and even St George Illawarra Dragons, despite some solid play.
All of which has prompted Graham and the club to consider the possibility of an early release back to Super League.
That, however, is dependent on the Dragons being able to acquire a replacement player.
The Dragons full statement reads as follows:
St George Illawarra have been involved in discussions with Dragons forward James Graham and his management regarding an opportunity for him to return to the English Super League with immediate effect.
The Dragons will consider this option for Graham on the merit a replacement player is secured by the club prior to his release.
The Dragons will be making no further comment regarding Graham at this stage.
