Panthers share update on Matt Moylan

Penrith have put a line through speculation that Matt Moylan could leave the club.

There had been talk that the first-year captain, who does not come out of contract until 2021, could seek a release to join a rival club.

But there has been a resolution after discussions between Panthers footy boss Phil Gould, Moylan and his manager.

"We held a long discussion with Matt and his manager this morning," Gould said in a statement.

"As a result of this meeting we can confirm Matt is 100 per cent committed to his future at the Panthers and we are 100 per cent committed to Matt.

"We see Matt as a valuable asset to our club and hope he has a long and successful future as a Panther.

"In the short term we are giving Matt some time away from the game to deal with some personal issues and we hope that people will respect his privacy."

Moylan is currently out with a hamstring injury but may have been fit to play in Penrith's elimination final against Manly this weekend.

He was dropped from the side earlier this season after going out drinking following a loss to the Storm in Melbourne.

Rumours also spread that he had been less than enthusiastic about his hamstring rehab, while it has been said he is unhappy about his positional changes throughout the year.
