Sam Moa is adamant he will play out his current contract with Sydney Roosters, quashing speculation he was set to make a premature exit from Bondi.
The Kiwi international prop’s current deal concludes at the end of next year, but he has been linked to both Penrith and Manly ahead of the 2016 NRL season.
In fact the 29-year-old says he wants to play our his career with the Roosters.
“There is no change to my contract situation,” Moa said on Thursday.
” I will be playing out my contract here with the Roosters. I’m happy here and as far as I am concerned that’s where I will be staying.
“I just want to focus on my football, whatever happens in the future is going to be guided by my form. I feel I still have a lot to give and am still playing my best football.”
Moa said the constant speculation was a distraction but it was part of parcel of playing in the NRL.
“It is frustrating at times, but it happens to a lot of players all that speculation, you have just to be professional,” he said.
“To know where you stand helps and I have spoken to Robbo (Roosters coach Trent Robinson) and he has told me that he wants me here.
“My form at the end of this season and the start of next season will determine where I am at in the market.
“Beyond that I would prefer to stay in Sydney and I would prefer to stay with the Roosters, which I think is the best club in the competition.”
