Australia vice-captain Brad Haddin insists that there is no dressing room divide among his teammates.

Australia vice-captain Brad Haddin has insisted that his team are united ahead of their second Ashes Test against England despite reports to the contrary.

Word of a feud between Michael Clarke and Shane Watson emerged following remarks by former coach Mickey Arthur that the former described his teammate as a "cancer" in the side.

However, Haddin declared that the reports in the media have not affected the team and denied rumours of a divided dressing room.

"The Ashes is as good as it gets - all the other stuff is white noise," talkSPORT quotes him as saying. "It has not affected the side. The Australian dressing room is fine. There is no feud.

"The group has been fine since day one of the tour. We're all hurt from losing the [first] Test. It hasn't driven us closer together - it has made us determined to win a Test."

Clarke has also denied reports of a divide in the Australia camp.
