All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams has expressed an interest in joining Super League newcomers Toronto Wolfpack, according to their head coach Brian McDermott.
McDermott told the PA news agency that Toronto wants to bring in a David Beckham-type player to do for the Wolfpack what the former Manchester United favourite did for LA Galaxy and that Williams fits the bill.

“Sonny Bill Williams has shown interest in us and that’s what it is at the moment,” McDermott said
“He’s currently busy with the World Cup so I wouldn’t ever dare to suggest that he is more than interested in coming but the answer wasn’t a ‘no’ once we made contact so that’s something we’d like to follow up.”
