Transfer Rumours: England centre close to confirming next club

According to the Australian press England powerhouse Ben Te’o could be on his way to the Queensland Reds to fill the boots of Samu Kerevi.

The 32-year-old, who has been at Worcester Warriors for three seasons, has won 16 caps since making his England debut against Australia during their summer tour in 2016.

Te’o was also a key member of Warren Gatland’s British & Irish Lions squad that secured a historic series draw against the All Blacks in 2017.

He’s now concentrated on making Eddie Jones’ 31-man World Cup squad for the Rugby World Cup, which kicks off in September.

However, it is his plans post-World Cup which have spiked interest from the Reds and coach Brad Thorn, who shares pedigree with Te’o as a former Brisbane Broncos rugby league forward.

It’s reported that a lucrative two-year deal, worth around £400,000 will be on the table for the rugby league convert.
