Wales tight-head Adam Jones has played down rumours of him swapping the Ospreys for the Top 14 ahead of next season.
Jones' contract is up at the end of the season and while Ian Evans has been heavily linked with a move to Toulon and Clermont Auvergne continue to circle Alun-Wyn Jones, there have been suggestions Adam Jones would be another to join the cross-Channel exodus.
But the veteran prop, who has 89 caps for Wales, has poured cold water on those suggestions saying he will be in the Top 14 next season.
"No one's asked me," Jones said. "I'm far too old to be playing French rugby, and I'm an international so nobody wants me."
Jones' Wales and British & Irish Lions team-mate Jonathan Davies has already confirmed his intentions for next year having announced he will play for Clermont Auvergne next season, but Jones, according to the BBC, will speak to the Ospreys in the next month or so to thrash out his future.
