Adam Jones Wales v England 2013

Contract talks: Adam Jones

Wales prop Adam Jones claims he is not likely to follow the "exodus" of his countrymen to France because no Top 14 club wants him.

Veteran tighthead Jones is one of a number of Ospreys forwards who are out of contract at the end of the current season, including fellow British and Irish Lion Alun Wyn Jones.

Ian Evans, second-row alongside Wyn Jones, has been strongly linked with a move to Toulon, but the prop maintains he is unlikely to head across the channel.

"I'm too old, nobody wants me," Jones told the BBC.

"No one's asked me.

"I'm far too old to be playing French rugby, and I'm an international so nobody wants me."

Jones revealed he would be discussing his future with the Ospreys following the conclusion of the November Tests.

"We'll see how it goes now - see what happens this next month or so I think," added the 32-year-old.

"This next four weeks it will be quite interesting to see what happens."
