All Black Beauden Barrett may be in the market, but he is definitely not on the Blues' wishlist.

All Black Beauden Barrett may be in the market, but he is definitely not on the Blues' wishlist.

Barrett revealed that he is likely to resolves the issues around his future next week, when the Hurricanes have a bye.

However, he should be expecting a call from Blues coach John Kirwan, who said he would be looking internally for a flyhalf.

It followed speculation the Hurricanes playmaker, Barrett, could be moving to Auckland.

However, Kirwan made it clear the Auckland-based franchise has not put in an offer for the young playmaker – and he is pleased with the current squad.

"We're really happy with Simon [Hickey] and Ihaia [West] so we're going to go internally," he says.

"We're talking to both those guys and hopefully we'll have results on that in the next few days."

With the Hurricanes preparing for a must-win game against the Chiefs, Barrett said he would wait till next week's bye before he starts considering any offers.

"My mind is on the game this weekend, it's a pretty big game for us," Barrett said.

"We've got a bye week next week, so I've got a bit of time to think about things," he added.

"I'm pretty comfortable here in Wellington, love the place, love the team."
