The Blues have denied reports the rugby league superstar, Benji Marshall, has signed a deal with the Super Rugby franchise.

Marshall's been considering an offer from the Blues after being granted an early release from his NRL club, the Wests Tigers, and met the coach, Sir John Kirwan, and other Blues officials in Auckland on Friday.

Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper now reports Marshall's made his decision and signed a contract with the Blues.

However a Blues spokesperson says the playmaker hasn't signed anything yet and they're expecting to know whether their bid has been successful in the next two days.
