The Warriors have not offered interchange prop Charlie Gubb a new contract with his current deal running out at the end of this season - but that's a good thing for both parties.

Charlie Gubb wasn't offered a new deal by the Warriors and concedes it's a good time for a fresh start.

Gubb, who has played 37 NRL games for the Warriors since debuting in Perth against South Sydney in 2013, told 1 NEWS today even if the club had offered him a new contract, he wouldn't have taken it.

"With the way things panned out, na - I'm happy I'm going," he said.

Gubb rose in the ranks to his first start last season after 27 interchange appearances but has since fallen out of favour with Warriors coach Stephen Kearney and has been playing for the reserve grade side for most of this season.

"I'm happy with the time I've had here," he said.

"I'm really lucky that the Warriors gave me an opportunity but I see where they're going so I'm happy I'm off as well."

The Warriors are currently on a six game losing streak and will miss the NRL playoffs for the sixth straight year.

The Kiwi NRL club is also set to lose big name players such as Kieran Foran, Ryan Hoffman and Ben Matulino at the end of the season as it attempts to control rumours a change in ownership is also on the cards.

Gubb said he was upset he was leaving his friends and coaches at the club, but was happy knowing he had options elsewhere.

The 27-year-old Wellingtonian wouldn't tell 1 NEWS where offers were coming from, but offers reported in the past have come from teams such as the Cronulla Sharks and North Queensland Cowboys.

The Warriors play the Rabbitohs in Sydney on Friday evening at ANZ Stadium.
