The Dragons have ruled out a move for Bath centre Gavin Henson.
Henson, who has already played for Welsh regions the Ospreys and Cardiff Blues, was linked with a move to the Dragons with his contract up at the end of the season.
But according to Wales Online, Dragons boss Lyn Jones, who worked with Henson at the Ospreys, has revealed Henson will not be playing for the Newport-based region next term.
Following his man-of-the-match display against Brive on Sunday for Bath, head coach Mike Ford was asked about Henson's future and said the club were still weighing up whether to offer him a new contract.
"We will make a decision on him when it's right. The quality of his performance was good," said Ford. "He gives us strength and depth to our squad. He is a different player to Kyle Eastmond at 12, but you need those players so you can play different ways.
"He can kick a ball a million miles, he can be a little bit more direct and he can kick goals for us. Now he is fully fit and he has got a run of games, it's looking well for the business end."
