Barba has two years to run on his current deal and the fullback and sometime five-eighth has been tipped to sign with Cronulla in the coming days.

Bennett told The Courier Mail it was hard telling Barba he had no future at the Broncos.

The Broncos have signed fullback-pivot options Darius Boyd and Anthony Milford for 2015, squeezing Barba out of the club.
