Danny Cipriani has revealed that he’s currently training with England legend Jonny Wilkinson as he prepares for a return to rugby.
The 16-cap England fly-half, who departed Gloucester for personal reasons last month, was speaking about his future plans with the Mail Online.
“I have had some interesting offers from abroad and there are a few things bubbling here,” revealed Cipriani, who we linked with a move to Newcastle Falcons.
“I’m going to spend four or five months on the running track and I’m doing kicking with Jonny (Wilkinson). He’s a great man and I love being around him.
“For me, it’s about being part of an exciting project and challenging for a title. English rugby is not ruled out. It’s not necessarily a monetary thing and it never has been.

“For me to play in England, it’s about having a project to get involved in and getting on well with the coach.
“I’d love another shot at getting to the play-offs and trying to win the Premiership title. If I’m going to keep playing, I want to do it properly. It’s just about getting something exciting. I’ve definitely got two or three years left in me.”
England Legend Jonny Wilkinson Names His Five Best Fly-Halves Of All-Time
1. Michael Lynagh (Australia)
For a decade from his debut in 1984 to his international retirement in 1995, former Wallaby Skipper Lynagh was one of the most distinguishable players in World Rugby. After 72 internationals, he had set a new point-scoring record of 911, which is still an Australia record. He was an important member of the side that won the 1991 World Cup in England, but retired from International Rugby after Australia’s loss to England in the quarter-final of the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
