Ferguson joins Eels for 2019
THE Parramatta Eels have signed former Blues State of Origin winger Blake Ferguson on a three-year deal to start next season.
Ferguson will quit the Roosters at the end of the season to sign a $1.5 million contract with the Eels, his fourth club in the NRL following stints at Cronulla, Canberra and the Roosters.
The Roosters star knocked back an offer from the Newcastle Knights to accept Parramattaâ€™s offer.
He also had an approach from the Cronulla Sharks, who need to replace Newcastle bound Edrick Lee
He had been offered a one-year extension at the Roosters but wanted long-term security.
Ferguson has been off alcohol and gambling since going into rehab in the last off-season.
