Danny Cipriani agrees return to Wasps
Sale Sharks fly-half Danny Cipriani has agreed on a deal to rejoin former club Wasps
The 28-year-old will return to his first professional club after four seasons
He has made 65 appearances for the Sharks
Danny Cipriani will leave Sale Sharks at the end of the current Aviva Premiership season and return to former club Wasps after rejecting a big-money offer from French and European champions Toulon.
The BBC claim that a deal has already been agreed for the fly-half to join Wasps – who have relocated to Coventry since Cipriani left them in 2010 – while the Daily Mail claim that an announcement will be made by his new club in the next 48 hours.
The Daily Mail add that Cipriani’s new contract will be a two-year deal worth a huge £300,000 a season, and that a break clause in his current contract with Sale will enable him to leave the club despite having a year left to run on his current deal.
Cipriani, who spent the 2011-12 season at Australian side Melbourne Rebels, has won 14 caps for England but missed out on the squad for the Six Nations.
Wasps, who have relocated to Coventry since Cipriani last played for them in 2010, are fourth in the Premiership.
