#2. George Ford to Sale Sharks
The 28-year-old, capped by England on 77 occasions, has signed a three-year deal. Ford, who returned to Leicester in 2017, will now leave Welford Road for a second time, having previously joined Bath in 2013.
Following the announcement, Ford, who elected against taking up an option to stay with the Tigers, said: “It has been the most difficult decision of my career.
“I am proud and grateful to represent this great club at Leicester and I will give my all for the rest of my time at Tigers.”
