SYDNEY, July 3 AAP - Sydney Roosters superstar Sonny Bill Williams says he has not committed to another year at the NRL club despite reports to the contrary.

News Ltd reported on Wednesday that the All Blacks world cup winner had signed a new $1 million contract to stay with the tricolours beyond this season.

The in-form Williams who is currently only contracted to the Roosters until the end of 2013 and has been repeatedly linked to a return to rugby union, took to Twitter to hose down claims he had made a decision on his future.

"I have not signed or committed to anything for next year and won't be doing so until I feel the time is right," Williams wrote.

"My sole focus right now is playing the best I can for the boys and the club.

Williams is also said to be keen to continue his boxing career.

He defeated Francois Botha on points in a WBA international heavyweight fight in February just before joining the Roosters for pre-season training.

NRL boss Dave Smith said it was important for rugby league to retain players like Williams.

"We want people in our game like Sonny Bill and of course we want him to stay," Smith said.

"He's one of many wonderful athletes in our game - you got GI (Greg Inglis) here, Sonny Bill, the list is endless.

"It would be great to keep people like Sonny in the game. I think it's really important for the game."
