Dai Young “interested” in Steffon Armitage

  • Dai Young has admitted interest in bringing Steffon Armitage to Wasps
  • Reports from France have suggested that Armitage is keen to go back to England
  • The 30-year-old has been across the channell for five years
Wasps director of rugby Dai Young has confirmed his interest in bringing back exiled England international forward Steffon Armitage from Toulon.

Reports from France have suggested that 30-year-old Armitage is keen to return to England after five years across the Channel.

“We would certainly be interested in bringing somebody like Steffon back,” Young told BBC Sport.

“But we have had no contact with Toulon at all and, until that becomes a reality, we’ve nothing to comment on.”

Young admits that the end-of-season loss of George Smith and Charles Piutau makes speculation about players of the calibre of flanker Armitage and South African back Willie Le Roux inevitable.
