TRANSFER NEWS | Alex Goode agrees move away from Saracens

It’s understood that the 2019 European Player of the Year, Alex Goode, has agreed terms on a season-long loan move to Japan, according to the Mail Online

The 31-year-old is expected to return to Saracens next summer, ahead of their anticipated return to the Premiership, after a campaign in the Championship as punishment for salary cap violations.

Goode established himself as a regular in the 2008/09 season and his consistency of high level performances has contributed to the club winning five Premiership titles and three European Cups.

The full-back, who can also ply his trade at fly-half, earned international recognition with England in 2012, making his Test debut against South Africa and has gone on to earn 21 caps and represent the Barbarians.
