Jacques O'Neill's rugby team hint at Love Island star's next move after ace quits villa in emotional scenes | The Sun

JACQUES O'NEILL'S next move following his Love Island exit has been hinted at by his former rugby club's manager.

Castleford Tigers, the team he played for prior to entering the villa, have the option to re-sign him.

However, coach Lee Radford has revealed he is unsure if he will return.

The Love Island star visited Castleford on Wednesday morning following his announcement that he was going to quit the show to "get back to himself".

The club have offered him support to help him following the exit.

And Radford suggested he may not continue his rugby league career.

On O'Neill deciding to leave the ITV show, Radford said: "Like any walk of life there are obstacles in front of you.

"Unfortunately, making sure people are around you whether that be your family or club related to help you deal with that is pretty important.

Talking about his own mental health experience, Radford stated: "Criticism you tend to keep it within yourself and use it as a motivator, I think that's a generational thing.

"I think its more open and spoke about now than it probably ever has been. I think I am probably from a different generation."
