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."
