Wales back-rower Ross Moriarty will stay at Dragons by signing a new contract, according to reports.
The back-rower, who’d been exploring other options, decided to sign on after winning an appeal to have his maximum salary increased.
Moriarty is in his second season at Rodney Parade having joined from Gloucester in 2018 and has played 17 games for Dragons.
From the Premiership there was significant interest from Bath, Exeter Chiefs, Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints while across the Channel big-spending French sides, Lyon, Montpellier and Toulon were all keen.

Having played for England Under 18 and Under 20, Moriarty made his Wales international debut against Ireland in August, 2015.
He originally missed out on selection for Warren Gatland’s 2015 World Cup squad but was brought in after Eli Walker’s hamstring injury forced the Ospreys winger out of the tournament.
Moriarty’s father Paul played in the first World Cup in 1987 before forging a successful rugby league career with Widnes.
