Northampton boss Chris Boyd responds to Ben Youngs transfer rumour

England scrum-half Ben Youngs has been linked with a move to Northampton Saints after spending his whole career at Leicester Tigers.

Chris Boyd spoke candidly following Saints’ loss to Leinster at Franklin Gardens in the Heineken Cup.

“I have never spoken to Ben Youngs in my life and we have absolutely no interest in Ben Youngs at Northampton Saints. Is that reasonably clear?” Boyd said.

“We are looking for young guys with potential. Ben Youngs has been wonderful for Leicester and for England. Leicester are his club.

“I am not interested in recruiting a 30-year-old from another club in England. It’s not where we are going.

“You can put that one to bed. It is probably his agent looking for another 100k. Nothing to do with us.”
