Souths reject Reynolds’ release: report

The Gold Coast deny they’re chasing Adam Reynolds, with the South Sydney playmaker reportedly asking for a release from his NRL contract.

News Corp reports Reynolds has been knocked back by Rabbitohs management after requesting an immediate release from the final two years of his deal.

It was suggested the Titans were circling the highly-rated halfback. However, Gold Coast chief executive Graham Annesley said on Friday the club hadn’t even spoken to him about a possible move.

Annesley said the Titans weren’t interested in Reynolds because of their abundance of playmakers.

The club has invested in boom youngster Kane Elgey and signed Tyrone Roberts from Newcastle and Australian under-20s halfback Ashley Taylor from Brisbane.

“There’s nothing to it. We haven’t even spoken to him,” Annesley told AAP.

“I don’t know how some of these rumours start but there’s just nothing to it whatsoever.”

“We’re pretty well served with halfbacks.”

Souths have been told by the NRL it must jettison players to make salary cap room for Sam Burgess, who is returning after a one-year stint in English Rugby Union.

Queensland State of Origin back-rower Chris McQueen is expected to part ways with the club in the coming days and sign with Gold Coast.

The Titans have room under their cap after Daly Cherry-Evans reneged on his agreement to join the club in 2016 and Dally M centre of the year James Roberts this week parted ways following a contract forgery scandal.

Reynolds was named Dally M rookie of the year in his debut season in 2012 and has been mentioned as a future NSW representative.
