Battling hamstring injuries in the past, the star recruit is currently sidelined with a toe injury while also carrying a shoulder-neck issue, with Wide World of Sports' The Mole reporting his injury woes have pushed the club to look at their options.

Parramatta encountered the same issue with Foran's former teammate Anthony Watmough in 2016 as the NRL cleared his knee injury as career-ending, allowing them to remove his mammoth contract out of their salary cap.

If Foran is allowed to retire, Canterbury will be granted the same luxuries, keeping his lucrative contract out of next year's salary cap to give them some much-need cash to play with.

A major risk when signing him, Foran planned on reuniting with former coach Des Hasler on a multi-million dollar deal to reinvigorate the competition's worst attacking side in 2017.

A year on not much has changed as the club has scored the second least points of any side this season.

Foran has failed to live up to the hype that saw him evolve into one of the world's best players at Manly, delivering few highlights in a slow start to the year at Belmore.

The club has already been forced to let Moses Mbye take up a deal at the Tigers, while high-earning prop Aaron Woods is on the verge of linking up with Cronulla to alleviate more salary cap pressure.
