The former NSW and Australia five-eight had stints in the English Super League with Catalans Dragons and Salford Red Devils before signing with Northern Pride in October.

North Queensland have reportedly wanted to sign the former Dally M medal winner as back up to halves Johnathan Thurston and Michael Morgan since the off-season.

Troubled former NRL player Todd Carney has signed a Super League deal with Hull KR. The Pride had felt they deserved compensation from 32-year-old Carney to let him out of his three-year contract early , and Fairfax Media says that has now been arranged.

South Sydney have shot down Todd Carney ’s latest hope of a return to the NRL , saying the club has “no pathway” for him to play first grade. It follows a Fairfax report saying that Norths were interested in picking up Carney , who wants to be Sydney-based to take care of his sick mother.

“He’ll probably be registered tomorrow,” Kent told Triple M.

“He played for (Cowboys feeder club) Northern Pride this weekend and last Tuesday he began training with the Cowboys, so they’ve now got him back at the club.

“And NRL (officials) are flying up (to Townsville) tomorrow – my understanding is to put some conditions to Todd Carney.

“It’ll be a conditional registration whereby I dare say he’ll be forbidden from drinking and I imagine there’ll be some sort of counselling process that he needs to continue to undergo.

“And that will happen so with those conditions in place the NRL will register his contract.”

Carney has played 166 NRL games for the Raiders, Roosters and Sharks in a career plagued by off-field incidents.

He would be a welcome addition to a Cowboys roster that is struggling mightily with just one win in their first six games.

Carney could make his long-awaited NRL return as soon as Saturday night when the 15th-place Cowboys host Gold Coast on Saturday night.
