The Roosters are "not happy" with Latrell Mitchell for a raft of reasons and could let him walk for next season, Nine rugby league reporter Danny Weidler says.

Weidler on Tuesday broke the story that the Roosters had withdrawn their contract extension offer to Mitchell; about $800,000 per season for 2021 and beyond. He further explained the situation on Wednesday.

The Roosters are upset that Mitchell baulked at money which is top-dollar for an NRL centre and that he has shopped himself to rival clubs, Weidler said.

"There was a meeting yesterday between (Roosters coach) Trent Robinson and Latrell Mitchell," Weidler told Sky Sports Radio.

GF snub that could be final straw for Latrell

  GF snub that could be final straw for Latrell The Roosters are set to bring the ongoing contract saga surrounding superstar centre Latrell Mitchell to a head this week.Holding on to Mitchell has proven a difficult task for the Roosters who failed to re-sign the two-time premiership winner ahead of the November 1 deadline, allowing him to shop his worth on the open market.

Latrell Mitchell has vowed to continue "naming and shaming" discrimination with Adam Goodes – among countless others Goodes voices support for Latrell 's passionate anti-racism promise. Goodes has since said he has " fallen out of love with AFL" as a result of the ongoing saga, with the

Latrell is also in the middle of a split from his long-time agent, Steve Deacon, the former Easts centre. This issue was discussed by Roosters officials during Mitchell was at the weigh-in when Paul Gallen fought John Hopoate. He just hung out in a corner of the room and politely declined interview requests.

"I don't think there were any managers there or anything like that, I think it was at Latrell's house. At that meeting, Trent Robinson simply said to Latrell, 'The offer's off the table. If you want to start looking around properly, go look around'. Basically, do your best.

"I think they're absolutely frustrated. They don't really know how to handle the situation other than to take the offer away, because they believe there is no centre in the game getting better than $800,000 a year; and I'm struggling to think of many who do.

"You might say Jack Bird's getting more, but he wasn't signed by the Broncos as a centre. So they figured they would make the best possible offer to a centre in the competition, and that's $800,000 ... for Latrell.

"I think they are absolutely frustrated and they're not happy that he's been shopping himself around. They figure that they're a strong club, they've spent a lot of time with Latrell dealing with things and nurturing him.

"Obviously Latrell has given a lot back to the Roosters on the field, as we know. He's an out and out match-winner. But they believe things are pretty even there in terms of what he's done for them and what they're doing for him. They're not happy at all.

"I can't speak for the Roosters, but I wouldn't be surprised if that (Mitchell joining a new club in 2020) happened. If a club came to them and Latrell was happy, I wouldn't be surprised if they let that happen. That's how bad things have got."

Weidler said that Mitchell appeared to be unhappy with his current agent, Wayde Rushton, having already been through a messy split with former manager Steve Deacon earlier this season.

It remains to be seen which other clubs will make a serious play for Mitchell, who at this stage remains under contract with the Roosters for next season.

Weidler said that the Eels had ruled themselves out, while the Knights were an interesting possibility but likely short of cash.

"There's a bit of history between Latrell and the Newcastle Knights, obviously he's from Taree," Weidler said.

"I think in an ideal world, if there hadn't been some overlooking of Latrell's talent in the past, I would have thought Newcastle would have been a really good home for Latrell. I don't think they have the money, although things can change."

Though Nine's The Mole reported on Tuesday that the Bulldogs had ruled themselves out, due to Mitchell's asking price, Weidler believes they are still a big chance to sign the Test centre. Canterbury reportedly have a full salary cap for next season, complicating any prospects of an immediate switch.

The Rabbitohs, linked to Mitchell earlier this year, are an unknown quantity.

"At the moment, if you're looking through everything, Bulldogs would be in the box seat," Weidler said.

"The Rabbitohs have been very quiet on the whole Latrell situation. They'll probably have some money up their sleeve, but they probably need a middle forward more than anything at the moment, given what's going on with Sam Burgess."

Weidler said that there may also be a chance of Mitchell linking with Penrith.

"I know there are people who are connected to Latrell, not his manager, who believe that Penrith would be a good place for him to go. I know that has been brought up, I don't know if anything has happened formally or informally at this point."

FOX Sports reported that Wests Tigers could make Mitchell a $3.3 million offer for the next three seasons, having freed up money with Ben Matulino's retirement and Ryan Matterson's looming departure. However, the deal would be contingent on Mitchell playing fullback, which would require better fitness.

Mitchell had a turbulent year in which he was touted as the game's best player, won Dally M Centre of the Year and claimed back-to-back premierships with the Roosters; yet was also dumped from the NSW State of Origin team and branded a weak link in the Kangaroos Test side that copped a historic upset loss to Tonga.

The Roosters seemed to be his steadying influence throughout, but he has reportedly fallen out with senior figures at the club and may now be finished with the Tricolours.
