As Mitchell, 22, is struggling to find suitors in the NRL, wanting out of the Sydney Roosters, the Syndey Morning Herald are reporting that the reigning Dally M centre of the year's representatives have approached Rugby Australia over a possible switch.

So far, the Bulldogs and Wests Tigers have opted out the idea of signing Mitchell, with the Cowboys and Knights also reported to be interested.

His current deal with the Roosters expires at the end of 2020, having helped the club to back-to-back NRL titles.

Mitchell's switch would prove a huge boost for Australian rugby, having exited the Rugby World Cup at the quarter-final stage, while also currently involved in an ongoing battle with sacked star, Israel Folau.
