Huw Jones still set for Premiership move despite position switch

Glasgow Warriors and Scotland speedster Huw Jones is still set to be on the move next summer, despite his recent positional switch.

The 26-year-old, who has long been linked with a move away from Warriors, is set to make a move to the Gallagher Premiership when his contract expires in 2021.

Making his name as an outside-centre, Jones has recently demonstrated his versatility by playing at fullback since the PRO14 returned last weekend.

Although he has yet to put pen to paper, 25-cap Jones is poised to sign a two-year deal with Leicester Tigers, according to RUCK sources.

Jones, who joined the Scotstoun club in 2017, has reportedly turned down a deal in the region of £300,000 a year to stay in favour of a move to England.
