George North posts statement on twitter after confirming Saints departure

George North will return to Wales from the start of the 2018/19 season after signing a national dual contract (NDC) to bring an end to a four-year stay at Northampton Saints.

The two-time British and Irish Lions tourist left the Scarlets in 2013 to play for Saints where he won the Aviva Premiership in his first season.

“It’s been a tough decision to leave Northampton.” wrote North on Twitter.

“I’ve loved every second that I’ve been at the club and want to thank them for all the support that they’ve given me.

“I also want to thank the supporters for making me feel so welcome.

“I’m working hard to get back fit and firing.

“I can’t wait to get back on the pitch and give it my all so I can help the club have a strong second half of the season.

“I’m very fortunate to have a great opportunity back in Wales with an NDC. I look forward to be heading home next season.”
