Kieran Foran's possible return to the NRL moved a step closer last week, as he crossed the Tasman for a tour of Warriors HQ.

The former Sea Eagles and Eels star inspected the facilities at Mt Smart, as well as taking a look around his old hometown.

The Auckland club are prepared to make a one-year offer to the Kiwis five-eighth, deciding that his potential impact would pay dividends even with such a short-term deal.

Warriors CEO Jim Doyle maintains a close relationship with Foran that goes back to his days as head of New Zealand Rugby League and is in regular contact with the 26-year-old.

The Bulldogs and Storm have also been linked with Foran, although any return to league is contingent upon a clearance from the NRL, after his breakdown earlier this year and exit from the Eels.
