Ramien has also fallen out with Newcastle and is looking for an opportunity that provides him with better pay and more football. The Cowboys are another contender for his services, while several other clubs are keen if they can offload players.
Ramien said he harboured no ill feelings towards the Knights after being told he would not play for the club again.
“Obviously at the end of the day it didn’t work out,” Ramien told NITV’s Over the Black Dot program.
“Their style of play and my style of play and my play obviously didn’t click as much as we would have liked it to. It’s a great club. I haven’t got a bad thing to say about the club. I got along great with all the boys there. These things happen in footy and I guess it’s just time to move on.”
Ramien, who is originally from the Newcastle area, made the shift from Cronulla partly due to family reasons.
“I enjoyed my time there,” he said. “When I left the bush I pretty much grew up in Newy. It was a bit of a going home for me. As I said before, I’ve just got to move on now.”
The 22-year-old centre was touted as a potential State of Origin player after bursting onto the scene at Cronulla. While he hasn’t lived up to the billing during his stint in the Hunter, he believes he will produce his best football at his next destination.
“It’s going to be pretty tough, my next decision, it’s going to be a big one,” he said.
“It’s an important part of my career. I’m looking for somewhere where I can do what I do best. I like to get the ball early, somewhere that has halves where they like to do that.
“There’s a few teams out there play that style of footy, and that’s somewhere I see myself being a part of, without giving too much away.
“It’s always a confidence builder when clubs are wanting you, especially when I haven’t had the best year coming off my debut year. To feel wanted is definitely a confidence booster.”
