Habana: Rules out move to the Premiership

Sky Bet

South Africa winger Bryan Habana will snub any possible move to the Guinness Premiership - because of the weather and the fact the people in England look miserable.

The IRB player of the year has been constantly linked to a move abroad - however Habana has committed himself to the Bulls until the end of the 2009 season.

The 24-year-old was reported to be in negotiations with French outfit Bayonne - and although Habana has denied that talks have been held he hasn't ruled out a move to the northern hemisphere in the future.

Habana, though, is not interested in a move to England, with France his most likely destination.

He told Sport magazine: "I could see myself playing in the south of France - plenty of sunshine and you only have to go to England when you play in the Heineken Cup.

"I really don't like the weather [in England], it's very cold, the sun sets too early and people in the street never look very happy."
