Montpellier boss Jake White has ruled himself out of becoming the next England head coach.

White was the favourite to take over last week before the RFU began talks with Stormers' boss Eddie Jones.

The former South Africa boss was in London last week for his side's Challenge Cup game with Harlequins and admitted an interest in the role.

However with Jones set to be announced on Friday as England's new boss, White has said he's staying in France.

"I have a contract with Montpellier. I'm not going to change, I'm staying here," White said. 

"It's important for the club, for the players and for the atmosphere to remove the doubt."
