Chiefs coach Dave Rennie and New Zealand Rugby Union boss Steve Tew both know where Sonny Bill Williams will play rugby next year but neither are saying anything.
There has been speculation that Sonny Bill Williams (SBW) has signed with the Sydney Roosters for a one-year return to rugby league's NRL and also rumours of a 12-match rugby stint with Panasonic in Japan reportedly worth more than $1 million.
There is also the possibility of SBW taking time out of rugby to concentrate on his boxing career.
The NZRU are bound by an agreement that allows SBW and his Sydney-based manager, Khoder Nasser to make the announcement when they are ready.
In the meantime SBW is keeping his cards close to his chest and gave nothing away at Chiefs training but said that he hoped his decision would be revealed soon.
"Hopefully, when the time's right," Williams told Fairfax.
"But as long as my coaches and my fellow team-mates are happy with how I'm doing, how I'm putting in, then I'm happy."
Chiefs coach Rennie said that he knows where SBW would be next year but was not at liberty to say.
NZ Rugby Boss Tew said he had a "pretty good idea" what Williams' plans were beyond the 2012 campaign.
"We've also given a commitment to him and the Chiefs about when that will be announced," Tew said.
Williams has thrived in the Chiefs camp this season and is on top of his game and has played some outstanding rugby for both the Chiefs and the All Blacks even though it took him three years to get into Rugby Union properly.
"A lot of people last year said that I didn't have what it took to make it as an All Black but I always said 'just give me a bit of game time and then we'll see how I go'," Williams said.
"It's been pleasing (in the recent series) to know that I can compete at that level."
SBW said that his "game understanding" in rugby union had come a long way from all the work he had done at training and from playing alongside top players the coaching he has had.
"I think that's what's made me more comfortable. I'm pleased with how I'm going."
SBW said that for now he is concentrating on Chiefs' campaign to get to the Super Rugby final and win it.
"Obviously we want to finish top of the table and get that home semifinal but that's a few weeks away yet and there's a lot of hard work that needs to be done.
"So as long as we're staying in the now and doing what we're doing, concentrating on our day-to-day efforts, doing our homework on opposition and then come off the field knowing we've played as hard as we can, then that's all you can do really.
"I'm so proud of how the boys have gone this year but I know that we want to take it up another level that will hopefully ultimately win this thing."
