Off-contract Australian International Tyson Frizell has been the subject of many rumours over the past few months after reports emerged that the 28-year-old was looking to leave the Dragons.
Lets look at some of the teams that Frizell has been linked with and the likelihood of them signing the second-rower.
The Roosters were linked with Frizell when reports first emerged he was unhappy at the Dragons, with the reported condition being that Frizell would head to Bondi if the tri-colours could offload big money second-rower Angus Crichton.
At this point in time that occurrence seems unlikely so don’t expect Frizell to be a Rooster any time soon.
At the end of the 2019 NRL season the Penrith Panthers were looking to reinvent their forward pack with a star signing or two to get their side on the front foot from the outset in 2020 and they looked to Tyson Frizell.
However since being linked with Frizell, the Panthers have signed premiership winner Zane Tetevano and Queensland 18th man Kurt Capewell, so it seems Frizell is out of the question.
The Knights are the latest side Frizell has been linked with as reports emerged last week that the New South Wales representative could be headed to the Hunter Valley.
While the Knights don’t necessarily need a second-rower, Frizell would easily walk into the starting lineup and along side rep teammate David Klemmer and take the Newcastle Knights forward pack to the next level.

There is always the possibility that he goes nowhere.
On the same day reports suggested the Knights were interested in Frizell rumours began to make the rounds that the Dragons have offered the Wollongong native a three-year-deal worth around $800,000 a year, which would keep him at the club until the end of 2023.
As things stand it seems Tyson Frizell will either be a Dragon or a Knight in 2021.
