The Melbourne Storm rugby league player, Greg Inglis, is tipped to sign a multi-year deal with the Brisbane Broncos on Monday.

The news comes just 48 hours after a News Limited commissioned report revealed Melbourne had exceeded the salary cap by more than 3-and-a-half million dollars [nzd] over the past four seasons.

Earlier this week, Inglis's manager, Allan Gainey, knocked back Brisbane's one and only offer of more than 450-thousand dollars-a-season [NZD] .

But Gainey's understood to have contacted the club on Thursday to re-open negotiations.

It's believed Brisbane have stood firm on their initial offer.

Inglis is expected to sign a two-year deal with the six-time premiers on Monday unless something unexpected happens over the weekend.
