Storm favourite son Ryan Hinchcliffe has expressed his desire to return to Melbourne once his playing career comes to an end.

The 34-year-old is coming to the end of his current contract with Huddersfield Giants in the UK Super League, where he has played since he departed Melbourne at the end of 2015.

Hinchcliffe made 175 NRL appearances in the purple jersey over seven seasons, winning two grand finals and claiming the 2010 Storm Player of the Year award.

He still remains one of the most beloved players to ever represent Melbourne.

With his future in the UK up in the air, 'Hinchy' has hinted he could find his way back to Victoria in the near future.

"I am looking at going back to Melbourne when I finish and hopefully get involved with the club at some level," Hinchcliffe told media in the UK.

"I still stay in contact with them. They are a good bunch of blokes and I shared some good times with them for seven or eight years.

"I've got to get my stuff sorted here first and see what happens after that. I'm still having some conversations with the coach and the football staff and trying to work some things out.

"Either way, if I stay or go, hopefully I'll get something sorted in the next couple of weeks."
