Sydney - Wallabies and Toulon utility back Matt Giteau has denied a report which suggests that he is set to retire soon.

A Midi Olympique report stated that Giteau would announce his retirement by the end of 2016.

The 103-Test veteran has been sidelined with an ankle injury which he sustained during the Wallabies' Test against the All Blacks in Sydney in August.

Giteau took to social media to deny that he was planning to hang up his boots.

A Twitter user asked Giteau if the Midi Olympique report had any merit to it. The 34-year-old replied: "pas vrai", which is French for "not true".

The Australian Rugby Union also confirmed it has not heard from Giteau as to whether he was planning to retire this year.
