Waratahs centre Tom Carter's manager has admitted they are in negotiations for a potential code switch and a move to the NRL.

Carter has been with the Waratahs for eight years but looks almost certain to leave at the end of the season, although his destination has yet to be decided. He has been in talks with several rugby league clubs in Sydney, Super Rugby rivals the Western Force as well as Japanese clubs.

"We have had preliminary discussions with a couple of rugby league clubs, and at this stage he has interest from another province," Ed Carter, brother and manager of Tom, told The Sunday Telegraph.

"At this stage, it looks like he is more than likely not going to be at NSW.

"The decision for him is based around the fact he is pretty keen to stay here, as opposed to going overseas, because with the right opportunity he still thinks he can play some decent football.

"He has really enjoyed his time and he'd hoped to continue to play there (with the Waratahs). He has a lot of respect for the people there," he added.
