Cape Town - Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is not planning a move to England following the completion of next year's World Cup.
Reports surfaced in England this week linking Kolisi with a move to Saracens or Wasps following the completion of next year's showpiece in Japan.
But, speaking to IOL, Houghton said that the national skipper was staying put.
"Absolutely no truth to the irresponsible rumour regarding Siya," Houghton was quoted as saying.
Kolisi has not yet been given the captaincy for next year's World Cup, but he is largely expected to lead the Boks in an effort to win the tournament for the third time.
