Wests Tigers have withdrawn their offer for disgruntled Sydney Roosters star Latrell Mitchell, the NRL side revealed on Thursday.
The Tigers were interested in luring Mitchell from NRL champions the Roosters, who pulled their contract offer for the centre earlier this month.
Mitchell – contracted to the Roosters for another season – has also been linked to Canterbury Bulldogs and Gold Coast Titans.
But the 22-year-old Australia international will not be making the move to Wests Tigers as his future remains in limbo.

“We’ve withdrawn the offer,” Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe told foxsports.com.au.
“It’s an active market and we have a responsibility to our members, fans and the club.
“We’re focused on securing talent but in relation to Latrell, we’ve moved on.”
It comes as the Tigers reportedly set their sights on Melbourne Storm star Josh Addo-Carr.
A Grand Final winner with the Storm in 2017, New South Wales representative Addo-Carr is believed to be eyeing a return home.
The 24-year-old speedster moved to the Storm from the Tigers ahead of the 2017 season.
