Speaking to Fox Sports, Politis said he had no idea where the rumours had come from and as far as he was aware, Williams was contracted to rugby union.
“It’s news to me,” Politis said.
“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.”
The rumour mill went into overdrive yesterday with reports from former rooster Jimmy Smith that Williams was all but a done deal to sign with the Roosters before the June 30 deadline.
“The mail is good. From what I understand the deal is done,” Smith said on Big Sports Breakfast radio show.
“It will be a short stint at the end of the Super Rugby season.
“They (the Roosters) would have to register the contract before June 30. They have space in the cap.”
