Leicester Tigers are reported to be looking at signing an Australian international prop ahead of next season.
The Rugby Paper has reported that the NSW Waratahs abrasive front rower Paddy Ryan could be on his way to Welford Road when his contract expires at the end of the current Super Rugby season.
Ryan has three caps for the Wallabies, earned between 2012 and 2014.
The same publication also reported Tigers fan favourite Logovi’i Mulipola is set to leave the club at the end of the season as his contract negotiations have stalled.
The Tigers already have Australian internationals Matt Toomua and Tatafu Polota-Nau at the club and head coach Matt O’Connor is a former Australia international centre.
