Speaking on Big Sports Breakfast radio, Weidler said the Rabbitohs are most open to letting him walk to a rugby union side.
“Souths are saying they really don’t think he’s going to be at their club,” Weidler said.
“They are prepared to release him in the right way. They would be most comfortable if he was in rugby union so he’s not at a rival club.
“They are firm in their view there is no way the Roosters will be getting him… that will be part of any sort of release.”
