CLUB LEGEND Danny McGuire says he is determined to bow out of Leeds Rhinos on a high.

Leeds-born McGuire, 34, has confirmed he will leave Rhinos at the end of the year after 17 seasons in the first team squad.

He is considering offers from other clubs, but has yet to make a decision on where he will play next year.

The former Great Britain and England half-back now has his sights set on emulating team-mates Jamie Peacock, Kevin Sinfield and Kylie Leuluai by winning silverware in his final campaign.

McGuire, who has won 15 major trophies with Leeds, admitted it will be a wrench to move on after so long and so much success, but he stressed: “This has made me more determined than ever to finish the season on a positive note.

“We are in a really good position with how we stand in the league and we are in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup.

“I really enjoy going to training with the lads, I could not wish for a better relationship and we’ve got a really good work ethic and commitment in the squad.

“We have proved that after a difficult year last year and I will definitely give my all for the rest of the season, as I have always done for the club, then look to the future after that.

“Hopefully I can bow out in really good style, like JP, Kev and Kylie were fortunate to do.”
