HAS Paul Vaughan's move to Warrington Wolves been all but confirmed?

It certainly appears so, with Canterbury Bulldogs general manager Phil Gould confirming the prop was on his way to Super League for next year.

The Australian international is widely expected to sign for The Wire, with Bulldogs teammate Matt Dufty and St George Illawarra forward Josh McGuire believed to be close to joining him at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

After some eye-catching performances of late, the appetite for Vaughan to remain at Canterbury has increased.

In responding to a supporter on Twitter, however, Gould confirmed he was heading for England.

Vaughan's expected arrival furthers an overhaul of the Wire pack for 2023, with mid-season signing Thomas Mikaele to be joined by Catalans pair Sam Kasiano and Gil Dudson at season's end.

Mike Cooper is joining Wigan for next year while the likes of Jack Hughes, Robbie Mulhern, Jason Clark and Matt Davis are all off-contract.
