Reports that Warriors five eighth James Maloney wants to leave the Auckland National Rugby League club early have been rubbished by the player.

Some Australian media claim the playmaker has again requested an early release from his next contract at the Roosters - but the playmaker insists he'll see out his deal at the Warriors next season first.

Maloney is heading to the Roosters in 2013 on a three-year deal.
