Transfer News | Ben and Tom Youngs make decision on futures

England scrum-half Ben Youngs and elder brother Tom are reportedly both set to sign new deals to remain at Leicester.

Speculation has surrounded the future of 96-times capped Ben Youngs, who has been on Tigers’ books since 2006, but it now seems he has accepted a decrease in pay to remain at Welford Road.

The pair had both been linked with moves to France but ultimately didn’t want to move their young families.

Although the club have refused to comment, BBC Radio Leicester is reporting that the Norfolk-born duo will both sign new contracts this week.

It means the family will continue their long association with the Tigers, which began through their father Nick, who played scrum-half for Leicester and England in the 1980s.
