Sir Gordon Tietjens has rejected media reports he's heading to Kenya this weekend for talks to take over at the helm of the Kenya Sevens team.

The decorated former All Blacks Sevens coach has however confirmed he has spoken to Kenyan officials in the past week, but no deal has been struck.

Tietjens has told NZME he has been contacted by Kenya and a couple of other countries and is excited by the possibility of new challenges.

Tietjens ended his 22 year reign at the helm of New Zealand after the failed Rio Olympics campaign.
