Moses hopes to seal Eels deal soon but deadline no distraction

Mitchell Moses remains hopeful of agreeing to a contract extension with the Eels but is waiting for his management to "let me know when something is ready to sign".

While a deadline is fast approaching in the next fortnight for the halfback to exercise an option to stay at Parramatta next year, the 26-year-old is understood to be in discussions about a new deal until the end of 2023.

The playmaker has also been linked to the Broncos, but they are also chasing South Sydney captain Adam Reynolds to the point that coach Kevin Walters and CEO Dave Donaghy reportedly flew to Sydney this weekend to meet with the premiership winner.

Speaking after Saturday's 32-10 win over the Bulldogs at Stadium Australia, Moses said he hadn't "heard anything at the moment" about meeting with Broncos powerbrokers himself while they're in town.

"I love my time at Parramatta. Hopefully something gets sorted out. I have left it up to my management," Moses said.

"I haven't heard anything for a while now. They will let me know when the time is right ... The club and my management are trying to work it out at the moment.

"I have left it up to them, they will let me know when something is ready to sign.

"I just have to play good footy here at Parramatta. My full focus is on here at the moment and trying to keep getting wins."

His next test is a match-up against Roosters whizz-kid Sam Walker in Friday night's heavyweight clash at Bankwest Stadium.

The 18-year-old rookie Rooster produced four try assists, per Stats, and scored one himself in his team's 38-4 victory against Newcastle on Saturday night.

"An 18-year-old going into that side - I don't think you have to do too much in that side and he is doing a lot," Moses said.

"You just have to fit into that and play off their forwards, it's an easy job to do and he is doing it even better than easy. He's really dominating the game as a halfback. I love watching him play."

Moses, who made his NRL debut for the Wests Tigers aged 19, is in awe of Walker's ability to stay composed under pressure.

"It's a very hard thing to do," he said.

"I am pretty much only doing it in the last couple of years, so for him to be doing it at 18 years old [is incredible].

"It was probably the best team to go to as an 18-year-old half - you probably want to come through at a Roosters side. And he has proven even better than I expected.

"He is controlling the game and dominating as an 18-year-old, and that's massive.

"[The Roosters are] going to be our biggest test. It's a big challenge on Friday night. They'll be a big scalp if we can get them."
