Wayne Bennett has denied reports Brisbane Broncos have made a move to sign Kieran Foran for the 2018 NRL season.
New Zealand Warriors half-back Foran has been linked with a switch to Suncorp Stadium next year as a replacement for the St George Illawarra Dragons-bound Ben Hunt.
Foran is only contracted to the Warriors for the 2017 campaign, but Broncos coach Bennett claimed the six-time premiers have not held talks with the playmaker.
"That's just a story. No one from this club has spoken to Kieran Foran or his manager," Bennett stated.
"We are always interested in quality players but no one has spoken to him.
"I won't go into any more detail. This club has made no approaches toward Kieran Foran or his manager.
"As well as that, we have not been approached by Kieran or his manager."
