The former rugby league superstar's conversion to the NFL was put on hold yesterday when he was cut from San Francisco 49ers' roster.

But his Australian agent Wayne Beavis said there was no chance of him coming back.

"He is 100 percent committed to what he is doing over there."

Hayne had been linked to a return to the NRL with Sydney Roosters if his career in the NFL did not work out.

The Roosters are searching for a new full-back for 2016 after Roger Tuivasa-Sheck's defection to the Warriors.

However, last month following Hayne's inclusion on the 49ers roster, Roosters supremo Nick Politis said his dream of seeing the former Parramatta number one in a Tricolours jersey was over.

As for Hayne, he will look instead to keep his NFL dream alive and has been linked to a potential move to the Detroit Lions or Seattle Seahawks.

The former New South Wales and Australian representative is remaining upbeat despite being unwanted by the 49ers.

"Blessed for another test," Hayne wrote on Twitter.
