Dragons head coach Kingsley Jones has distanced star No.8 Taulupe Faletau from reports linking him with a potential move to Bath.

Faletau has been strongly linked with a move that would see him link up with former Dragons coach Darren Edwards at Bath but the Wales No.8 still has a year left on his contract. He is not one of the players on one of the Welsh dual contracts - a deal part funded by the Welsh Rugby Union and the player's region - but Jones is hopeful Faletau will be at Rodney Parade next term.

"Honestly, Toby's really happy," Jones told the BBC. "We did bring it up a few months ago about his contract, looking to extend it even further. And... it's a long time to still run on his contract. I'm sure Toby wants to get through the World Cup before he looks at any option."

Jones added: "Anyone would be interested in a player of Toby's qualities."
