Keiron Cunningham dismisses Theo Fages link

St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham insists that he is not interested in signing scrum-half Theo Fages from Salford Red Devils.

St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham has dismissed speculation that his side could be interested in signing Theo Fages from Salford Red Devils.

The club's owner has previously said that the team will be looking for a world-record fee for the 20-year-old scrum-half, who is said to be keen to move on.

However, Cunningham told Sky Sports News: "We have got Luke Walsh, Travis Burns and Jon Wilkin who can play seven and I've got great juniors coming through. I am quite comfortable in the half-back department.

"Theo is a super kid, a great player and he has a very big future. He is a very talented kid and I am sure there will be a lot of interest in him.

"But maybe the Saints thing is a bit of smokescreen for somewhere else because I am very comfortable in the halves."

Fages has scored three tries in 13 appearances in the Super League so far this season.
