Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett says he expects Darius Boyd to return to the club by next week.
Boyd has followed Bennett from the Broncos almost a decade ago, to St. George Illawarra and Newcastle.
The veteran coach revealed that a deal for Boyd would be finalised in the coming days and tipped the 27-year-old to be training at Red Hill within a week.
“The only reason why there’s been a hold-up is because we’ve had to finalise the release from Newcastle,” Bennett is quoted as saying by AAP.
“We expect within 24-48 hours we’ll have Darius (on board).”
Boyd’s final season with Newcastle was cut short as he dealt with mental health issues.
