ADAM Reynolds has committed his future to Souths – but only because he priced himself out of Parramatta’s reach.
Reynolds signed a long-term deal with the Rabbitohs last week, but for a long while was eager to leave the club and have a fresh start.
The 26-year-old wanted a three-year deal at the Eels – $600,000 the first season, $800,000 the second and a cool $1 million the third.
Parramatta rated Reynolds and were desperate to sign him as a replacement for Kieran Foran, but not for that kind of money.
The 26-year-old recently signed a four-year extension at the Rabbitohs that will see him remain at the club until the end of 2021.
