The Rugby league World Player of the Year Sonny Bill Williams may have been disappointing in the World Cup final but he remains in hot demand.

Super League club Salford's rich and ambitious new owner Marwan Koukash appears to have joined the queue for Sonny Bill Williams' services.

Reputedly the biggest owner of racehorses in Britain, Koukash signalled his interest in the Sydney Roosters' NRL superstar via Twitter.

Williams has already indicated he'll be part of the Roosters' NRL title defence next year and is then expected to rejoin Super Rugby's Chiefs back in New Zealand ahead of the All Blacks' title defence at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
