Sea Eagles owner Scott Penn has called on the governing body to hasten its probe on alleged secret payments to at least one player amid fears the saga is damaging the Manly brand.

"Well we'll pretty much do exactly what Scott Penn's asked us to do, which is we'll be moving into Manly this week as quickly as we can," Greenberg said on Monday.

"Our integrity unit have reached out and we'll try to complete that investigation as quick as we can so we can bring some closure for Manly and for the game.

"I can't tell you how long it will take, but we've got a strong track record of doing these things methodically and uncovering any information we can find."

Greenberg said the NRL had yet to uncover evidence of illegal payments.

"As I sit here today, I'm unaware of anything at Manly. And that's why I think we need to put a full stop on it as quick as we can," he said.
