5. James Haskell (Wasps)
The 75-cap England and Lions flanker James Haskell told the BBC that he is “playing for a contract” in the final year of his Wasps deal. If the black and golds do not extend Haskell’s contract, there’d be no shortage of interest from both at home and abroad. Bristol, Glasgow, Gloucester and Northampton have so far been linked to the Archbishop of Banterbury.
6. Ben Foden (Northampton Saints)
The former England man is looking likely to move across the channel when his contract at Franklin’s Gardens expires in the summer. He’s admitted his Saints future is in limbo this week.
7. Jamie Roberts – Harlequins
There have already been murmurs suggesting Wales’ summer captain could return home at the end of his stay in the Premiership with Harlequins. Roberts’s original deal with the Quins is due to expire at the end of the coming season.
