LIST | 10 big-name players whose contracts are up next summer

8. Alex Dombrandt:  Northampton Saints are leading the chase for Harlequins back row, according to The Rugby Paper. Nicknamed ‘The Dominator’ he took the Premiership by storm with his powerful running and offload game, scoring 11 tries in 24 appearances.

9. Greig Laidlaw: A story featured in Midi Olympique, the leading sports newspaper in France, suggests the future of the Scotland playmaker has already been established, with the decision being he will not be at Clermont next season. It’s thought he favours a return to Edinburgh where he began his career, making 137 appearances and scoring 598 points in a seven-year stint in the Scottish capital between 2007 and 2014. However, there is also interest from Bath and Newcastle.

10. Jonathan Davies: Reportedly signed a one-year extension with the Scarlets back in March after a proposed move to Leicester broke down. With Tuilagi once again linked with a high-profile exit, Tigers will likely once again target the Welsh superstar.The centre is no stranger to plying his trade outside of Wales having joined Clermont Auvergne in the summer of 2014 on a two-year deal.
