A spokesperson for Jack White has told NME that he has never expressed an interest in working with The Libertines.

The denial was issued shortly after Libertines frontman Pete Doherty had said the band wanted White to produce their next studio LP.

White's representative contacted NME following claims from Doherty that White had expressed an interest in working with the band. The Libertines have previously confirmed that they plan to release a third album in 2015 and will play new material on their forthcoming UK and European live dates in September. The band's first two albums were produced by Mick Jones of The Clash.

Speaking on French TV station D8, Doherty claimed: "Jack White says he'd like to do it. I'd love him to do it, it would be amazing, but I don't want to get too hopeful."

The Libertines previously discussed plans for their next release, saying they want their mooted third album to be "a little bit different".

Pete Doherty gave more detail about the new songs they would be playing in London in September saying: "We're gonna be doing some new songs at Ally Pally. We were just working on one right now, before you came in. I can tell you that one of them has got this in it (makes a noise on a vintage typewriter)."
