Swan has taken to Twitter to quash speculation of an imminent retirement from the AFL.
Collingwood star midfielder Dane Swan has quashed speculation he’s about to retire from the AFL.
Rumours of a personality clash with Magpies coach Nathan Buckley have led some to speculate that the 30-year-old may hang up the boots before 2015.

Swan signed a contract extension in January that keeps him at the club until the end of 2015.
Back in 2012 however, Swan told the Herald Sun he was planning to retire at the end of the 2014 season.
“I will play out my contract and, at the moment, I think that will be the end of me,” Swan said.
“I would be 30 then (at the end of 2014), and they might want to get rid of me. They might be going for a youth policy by then.
“Look, don’t get me wrong, I love the footy club and everything they have done for me. They have given me the chance to make a good living and have a good way of life, and I hope I have repaid them.”
“But I won’t be still here playing when I am 35. I am not going to be one of those people who plays until they get sacked.”
