STAR playmaker Kieran Foran has confirmed he will leave the Warriors next season to move back to Sydney.
Foran has been heavily linked with a move to the Bulldogs, where his former mentor Des Hasler is the coach.
"It has been an incredibly tough decision to make but it has reached the point where I had to make a call and I've done that today," Foran said.
"I love it so much here at this club and I have so many people to thank for helping me to get my life and my football career back on track.
"I really wanted to find a way of staying and spending more time here because it's so good being around the boys and the people here. Every day I have a smile on my face when I come to training.
"But, in the end, it came down to my kids and what's best for them. I need to be back in Sydney to be closer to them.
"Before I do there's plenty to do here. I want to finish here as well as I possibly can. We can do something this year and I want to play my part in that."
