Salford star shuns transfer talk

Salford's England international Richie Myler says he is happy to leave contract talks to his agent as clubs take a keen interest in his future.

The 19-year-old half-back hit the headlines by scoring 30 points in England's 66-12 win against France.

He said: "I've got one more year on my contract at Salford and I'm just leaving all contract talks down to my agent [Martin Offiah].

"I've just got to keep playing well and hopefully reap the rewards."

Myler also refused to get carried away by suggestions he is now a certainty for the end-of-season Four Nations tournament between England, France, Australia and New Zealand.

His support game makes him so dangerous and it's up there with Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow, and he knows how to score tries

"There's a lot of games between now and the Four Nations and, like [England coach] Tony [Smith] said, it's your form that keeps you in the team and hopefully if I keep my form up I'll have a shout," added Myler.

"I've just got to keep going as I am and hopefully I'll achieve a lot more."

Reds team-mate Robbie Paul believes Myler has a major international future ahead of him.

"Richie is a great young player and great future prospect," Paul told the BBC's Super League Show.

"Myler's support game is second to none, he knows how to put himself in the right place at the right time.

"His [Myler's] support game makes him so dangerous and it's up there with Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow, and he knows how to score tries.

"He will have grown massively from that game.

"I don't think he will have learnt a lot from the game itself, but he will have learnt an awful lot from being part of the squad.

"He will have learnt a lot from the likes of Jamie Peacock and Adrian Morley."
