Josh Addo-Carr ends speculation about playing future

Josh Addo-Carr has ended speculation about his playing future in 2020 by committing to the club's premiership campaign this season.

Speaking publicly for the first time since he requested an early release from his NRL contract, Foxx said he was eager to rip into his fourth season in the purple jersey.

"I've always been happy living in Melbourne but I wanted to move back to Sydney for family reasons, for my kids to grow up surrounded by the rest of my family," he explained.

"I love the club and I love the boys - I'm looking forward to the 2020 season and I believe we can go all the way."

Since December, Storm has been exploring options to provide Josh with an early release from his playing contract, on compassionate grounds, at the end of the 2020 season.

To achieve this, Storm would be seeking fair value for Josh in return by way of a combination of the following: transfer fee; player swap, with the player being of commensurate standing (and/or) salary cap relief for doing the right thing by the player, and providing some extra support for Josh, not dissimilar to the recent scenario in the AFL with Tim Kelly at the Cats.

Before Melbourne's 2020 campaign begins, Foxx will represent the Indigenous team in the men's All Stars match on the Gold Coast later this month.

"I look forward to All Stars every year," he said.

"I'm very grateful to be in the side again and learn more about my culture and the area where we'll spend time in the lead up."

The speedster believes Storm are every chance to win the premiership in 2020.

"Last year was a very successful year - it's not easy to make it to a prelim," he said.

"We can win the premiership in 2020. We've put in the work, now it's just about believing we can get there and backing ourselves."

2020 will be a huge year away from the football field for Foxx - he and his partner Lakaree announced in December they are expecting a child.

"I'm having a little boy so I'm very excited, my partner and my family are very excited," he said.

"I can't wait to have a baby Foxx running around...I'm trying to enjoy my sleep ins at the moment."
