Racing Metro 92 have denied reports that they have made an approach for Cardiff Blues full-back Leigh Halfpenny.

Following Halfpenny's string of impressive displays for the British and Irish Lions in their 2-1 series win over Australia there has been much speculation over the full-back's future.

Paris-based club Racing Metro were believed to be among the clubs who had made an approach for him.

But on their website Metro were quick to quash these rumours in a written statement, which read: "According to the newspaper Rugby Paper, delegations from Racing Metro 92, of Clermont and Toulon have met the player's agent Leigh Halfpenny in London last week.

"Racing Metro 92 through its president Jacky Lorenzetti wishes to deny this."

Halfpenny is regarded as one of the hottest properties in world rugby and his reputation was enhanced further after being named the Six Nations player of the tournament in 2013 in addition to being the Lions man of the series in Australia.

Halfpenny's Wales and Lions team-mate's centre Jamie Roberts and flanker Dan Lydiate have already signed for Metro, but it remains unknown if Halfpenny could also potentially end up in Paris.
