Addo-Carr committed to Melbourne

Gilbert Gardiner - Herald Sun

Melbourne Storm has confirmed star Josh Addo-Carr will suit up in purple in 2020, contrary to speculation the winger wanted an early release and return to Sydney.

Premiership flyer Addo-Carr met with Storm chief executive Dave Donaghy in Sydney to reaffirm his loyalty to Melbourne.

The 24 year-old Australian and NSW Origin representative star offered the same pledge to football manager Frank Ponissi recently while on holidays in New York City.

Donaghy broke his silence today following constant speculation about Addo-Carr’s future.

“We don’t respond a lot to external noise but given there is quite a bit of commentary at the moment I thought I’d clear that up,” Donaghy said.

“Where the talk is coming from I’m not sure, but I can say hand on heart Josh is committed to Storm as much as we’re committed to Josh.”
