The powerful stopper has been set to leave France after undergoing a trial with Premiership side Bolton.
Trotters boss Sam Allardyce decided against a move for him, and he returned to Lens.
Bordeaux have now claimed that they have signed Rool on a one-year deal on a free transfer, although Lens have denied this.
They say that Rool still has two years left on his contract and is still with them, leaving Les Girondins sport director Charles Camporro in a state of confusion.
"We signed an agreement with Cyril Rool as he presented himself to us as a free agent," said Camporro.
"Today you tell me he has two years remaining on his Lens contract.
"I hope the situation between the player and his former club will be solved soon."
