If Milo and MM have re-signed and were supposed to be getting three incoming new signings somebody's got to be leaving
Mike McMeeken, Grant Millington, Daniel Smith, James Clare, Matt Cook and Calum Turner are among those off-contract and all are currently in talks with the club, with further activity expected this week.
Of those, I think Dan Smith would be the biggest loss. I hope we can keep him.

Isn't Moors off contract as well?

I think the poster means that these are the players currently in talks.
I guess we have decided not to renew Moors” contract.
Sene-Lafeo is also out of contract, but I guess has either signed an extension already or has decided to return home.

Been told Moors is done at the end of this season, possibly going back home. Not heard anything on Jesse.

Didn’t Jesse sign a 3 year contract in 2018 which would run out in 2021

No he isn’t, contracted until the end of 2021.

My understanding was that the three-year deal signed in April 2018 included the rest of the 2018 season, so covered 2018, 2019 and 2020. I could be wrong though, and hope I am!

Cas offered him a one year deal but he heads for the open market is a headline in tomorrow's RL Express

We should keep Millo, he wants to stay, and he would be a great bloke to have at the club while a few players come and go. He's a good bloke and I'm sure would help new blokes settle in. Of course his time is limited, but we are better when he's on the field than not.

I personally wouldn't want another Andy Lynch situation were he stays 1 season too many and cant deliver on the pitch.

The headline is somewhat misleading, and there is a subtle but important difference between your words and those used by TRL.

They actually say "Tigers offer Millington one-year deal – but forward heads for open market". When I read that I assumed that the "forward" in question was Millo. This is not the case - they are mixing two stories, Millo and Dan Smith.

The section on Millo ends with "he now has an offer to consider and a decision is expected in due course". The article then goes on to say, and I paraphrase here, that Smith has not agreed a new deal and will listen to other offers.

Hope that helps :)

It's just so happened a number of our players are off contract at the end of a virus hit season

I'd guess Smith will go to Leeds and Milo will sign on for next season
