England head coach Eddie Jones could lose a few of his star players to possible selection after they were linked with moves overseas.
Players who are out of contract with their current clubs this summer, from the 1st January, can begin negotiating with potential future employers.
Here are five England internationals who may make shock moves abroad in 2021:
1. Manu Tuilagi (Sale Sharks)
The Powerhouse centre may have played his last game for England if the latest reports are to be believed. The 45-cap centre, who will be out until at least May with a snapped achilles tendon injury, will miss the entirety of the Six Nations, but is hoping to end his Test career with the British & Irish Lions in South Africa.
According to reports in France, the 29-year-old, who is out of contract with Sale Sharks this summer, is being lined up to join Racing 92 or Toulon in the TOP14 ahead of the 2021/22 season.
