SOUTHS Syd­ney coach Michael Mto seek a Maguir­ere­lease from would the need fi­nal t t two years of his con­tract if he i i is to act upon a se­ri­ous ap­proach from the New­cas­tle Knights to take over as head coach.

As the Knights pre­pare for a sec­ond-round of in­ter­views with a short­list of coaches, in­clud­ing front-run­ner Nathan Brown this week, the club’s in­ter­est in Maguire has in­ten­si­fied in re­cent days, with spec­u­la­tion the pre­mier­ship­win­ning coach is firmly on their radar.

The Knights have spo­ken with Maguire’s man­age­ment, aware that if New­cas­tle of­fi­cials are to lure the 41year-old out of Red­fern, he would need to ap­proach South Syd­ney man­age­ment for a re­lease.

Knights of­fi­cials are yet to hear back from Maguire.

The Rab­bitohs would be loath to let Maguire go given he re­cently ex­tended his fu­ture with the club un­til 2017.
