Bath boss Gary Gold has criticised the media for making "irresponsible" links between the club and possible signings for next season.
Bath have been linked with London Irish and England centre Jonathan Joseph in recent weeks, but Gold has expressed his frustration over the speculation.
"Just because it's clear as day, we are looking at an area, I think it's irresponsible to link names to it," said Gold to BBC Radio Bristol.
"Centre is an area we are looking at, as well as back row and prop and number nine.
"I'm not sure where all this speculation comes from.
"Unfortunately when you see ridiculous statements being written in certain rugby journals you have to wonder what their source is. They seem to just pluck things out of the sky.
"But that's the way the world is. As far as I'm concerned we need to just crack on with what we do."
