A court hearing on the Sonny Bill Williams saga has been adjourned as the Bulldogs work through the final documentation on a reported $750,000 settlement from his French rugby union club, Toulon.

A spokesman for the Bulldogs told AAP the settlement would be completed "within the next 24 or 48 hours" on a deal that would see the NRL club end legal action against the rugby league star, who fled Australia for France three weeks ago - only one year into his five-year contract with the Bulldogs.

"The final documentation is being prepared by our legal team," he said.

"We're in the final process and we should have it resolved within 24 or 48 hours.

"Once (the settlement) is resolved and we know it's all done, we'll be the first to come out with a statement."

The spokesman said the settlement would be announced in court within the next two days. He could not give an exact date or time.

Last week, the club's chief executive Todd Greenberg confirmed the potential settlement was "in the vicinity of" $750,000.
