2019 NRL Signings Tracker: Johnson in dark on Warriors future

Star New Zealand halfback Shaun Johnson says he has yet to talk to the Warriors about his next contract following reports he is free to test his value elsewhere.

Johnson is off contract at the end of the 2019 and can negotiate with other clubs for 2020 and beyond.

"I haven't had any chats with anyone, I haven't spoken to the Warriors, I haven't spoken to anyone so I can't really comment on what's going to happen until I do that," Johnson told reporters at Auckland Airport after arriving home from the Kiwis' Test series in England.

"[The next steps are] probably speaking to my manager and speaking to whoever is keen to have a chat really.

"It is a business at the end of the day.

"I made my debut and played all my footy for the Warriors, it's a club that, regardless if I'm here over the next few years, I'm always going to love."

Trent Merrin has left the Penrith Panthers for English Super League club Leeds Rhinos, while Brisbane lock Josh McGuire is set to join the Cowboys.

Merrin departs the Panthers despite having two years remaining on his contract, having joined David Furner's Leeds side on a four-year deal.

McGuire will also end his contract early at the Broncos to join North Queensland, freeing up salary cap room for Brisbane who are yet to re-sign Tevita Pangai jnr, Matthew Lodge and Corey Oates for 2019.

Meanwhile Newcastle's off-season signing spree has continued with former Rabbitohs outside back Hymel Hunt has joined the Knights on a one-year deal.

Hunt, who can play at centre or on the wing, follows Tim Glasby (Storm), Jesse Remien (Sharks), Edrick Lee (Sharks), Mason Lino (Warriors), Zac Woolford (Bulldogs) and James Gavet (Warriors) in signing for Newcastle ahead of the 2019 season.

Here is a look at the moves for each of the 16 Telstra Premiership clubs since November 1.
