The 17 past and current Cronulla Sharks players issued with show cause notices from ASADA this week are expected to cut a deal with an agency this morning.

Fairfax reports the players may take a deal pending the World Anti-Doping Agency does not overrule a 12 month backdated suspension which would expire in November.

The involved players may also take legal action against the Sharks for damage to their reputations during the extensive 18-month saga.

More to come.
