LIST | Five players Leicester could sign after Manu Tuilagi departure

Steve Borthwick is facing a midfield headache after Kyle Eastmond and Manu Tuilagi departed Leicester Tigers following their much publicised wage row.

The duos departure leaves Tigers desperately short in the midfield with just two senior centres on the books in Matt Scott and Jaco Taute

These are five options Tigers could go and sign right now:

1. Joe Tomane

If Tigers are looking for an experienced head to help bring on some of their young backs then Tomane is an obvious choice.

The Wallaby, who is out of contract with Leinster in the summer, has been consistently brilliant for the Irish province and there will be no shortage of interest in securing the 30-year-old’s services.

Tigers should be at the front of that queue for the winger/centre.
