Adam Reynolds has rubbished speculation he is set to follow halves partner Luke Keary out the door at South Sydney.

While contracted at Redfern until the end of next NRL season, the No.7 has been linked to Parramatta after their failure to snare Jarryd Hayne.

He was rumoured to be restless at Redfern and earlier in the year it was reported he had asked the Rabbitohs for a release to the Gold Coast.

The Rabbitohs could be reticent to let the NSW playmaker go, especially with five-eighth Keary shifting to local rivals Sydney Roosters next season.

Reynolds described reports he could seek an early release as a figment of the media imagination and said he wanted to remain long-term.

“It’s a good club,” he said. “I’ve grown up in the area and lived here all my life.

“I’m still contracted next year and I haven’t spoken to anyone. They’re all rumours at the moment.”

NSW coach Laurie Daley, who handed Reynolds his State of Origin debut this year, on Wednesday said that if he was in charge of rebuilding Parramatta, he would chase the 26-year-old.

Reynolds described himself as a guaranteed starter for Sunday’s clash with Newcastle despite being forced to sit on the sidelines for the second half of Monday’s shock win over Cronulla because of concussion.

“As soon as I got up I felt sweet, I felt fine,” he said.

“I went off the field but thought I’d be alright to go back on.

“The doctor looked at the tape and said it wouldn’t be a good idea. That’s the medical advice and you have to back their decision.”

    Adam Reynolds is a Rabbitoh. Enough said. Champion bloke. Champion player. Souths would be stupid to not do everything they can to keep him. Other clubs can dream but you might as well try and get Thurston to leave the Cowboys, you would have the same chance.

    From what I hear, Parramatta are chasing Sam Williams from Canberra.

    Who was the last player that Parematta chased out of Redfern….how did that work out for them?

    Maybe clubs should look at developing their own talent from bottom up, rather than buying a player because he is in good form?

      Wasn’t aware that Redfern was a district in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.

    Reno is a ‘Diehard Rabbitoh’ so stop all these figments of your media imagination as Reno won’t be going anywhere from the Rabbits and Redfern. Once a Rabbitoh always a Rabbitoh for the diehards and all of us that have been born and bread in the area. Goodoya Adam you’re a champion bloke, player, enough said.
