NRL officials claim there has been no discussion about Blake Ferguson's possible rugby league return despite the sacked former Canberra star paying a visit to Rugby League Central on Tuesday.

Ferguson had his contract torn up by the Raiders earlier this month after failing to front the club's board to explain his erratic behaviour.

Joined by manager Sam Ayoub, he met with NRL officials on Tuesday, but the league denied there was any talk about Ferguson's playing future.

"The meeting's been scheduled for quite some time," NRL chief operating officer Jim Doyle said.

"He met with the welfare department and the integrity committee, just going through some of the stuff he's been working through."

The NRL have previously stated they will await a request from a NRL club before considering whether to register a contract for the troubled outside back.

Ferguson is facing two matters still before the courts, including an assault charge stemming from an alleged incident at a CRonulla nightspot on the eve of the NSW side going into camp for State of Origin II.
