Cape Town - Sydney Roosters chairperson Nick Politis has addressed rumours that Sonny Bill Williams was set to return to the NRL club in 2018.
Williams, 32, featured for the Roosters in 2013 and 2014, but is currently playing for the Blues in Super Rugby.
The 46-time All Black has been linked with a return to the
Roosters after this year's Super Rugby season.
However, Politis dismissed those suggestions, saying he was unaware where the rumours came from.
"It’s news to me," Politis told Fox Sports.
"As far as I’m aware he’s contracted to play rugby union in New Zealand. We love Sonny and we’ll always love Sonny.
"But I’m not sure where this has come from,"
Williams also played down reports he could leave the Blues, having played in his team’s 41-34 defeat to the Highlanders last Friday.
