Four of Sale Sharks transfer targets, including Faf de Klerk replacement

As Sale Sharks South African contingent, including Faf de Klerk, look set to move one, reports suggest Director of Rugby Alex Sanderson has a number of high-profile players on his shopping list.

#1. George Ford

  • Age: 28
  • Position: Fly-half
  • Honours: England, 76 caps

Sharks have confirmed they’re going all out to sign Leicester and England fly-half George Ford, director of rugby Alex Sanderson has revealed.

The 28-year-old is the Premiership’s leading scorer this season with 107 points, helping the Tigers win their first eight games.

He is in a second spell with Leicester, following four years at Bath, but was born not far away from Sale, in Oldham.

Sale have held preliminary talks with Ford and Sanderson said: “I thought it went well.”

He continued: “I have no intention of counting chickens before they’re hatched. I honestly couldn’t tell you what will happen.

“We can only put our best case forward and let the chips fall where they may, but I think we’re a club with aspirations, with investment and with good people involved. I think we’re a strong runner.”
