Harlequins has today confirmed in a statement that winger Marland Yarde will join Sale Sharks with immediate effect.
Yarde made 81 appearances for Harlequins, scoring 27 tries, since joining in 2014.
Harlequins Director of Rugby John Kingston said: “Marland is a top player and I have a great relationship with him. We have enjoyed working together over the last three years and I want to thank him for his contribution to the Club and wish him well for the future.
“He’s played really well for us this year, but the decision for Harlequins to allow Marland to speak to Sale was made because I felt it was in the best interest of the Club. Every decision I make is with the intention of doing the right thing for Harlequins football club, and that’s the way it will always be.
“I’m building a positive environment and culture at Harlequins, on and off the field, which I believe will ultimately allow us to challenge for honours.”
