Sale Sharks have announced that Cameron Redpath will leave the club with immediate effect to join Bath Rugby on a three-year contract.
The club have reluctantly agreed to accept a six-figure transfer fee to release Cameron from his Sale Sharks contract after unsuccessful negotiations with the player over the past couple of weeks.
Redpath was in the second year of a five-year contract but has failed to retain a regular first team place after a number of injuries halted his development.
Cameron, the son of former Sale scrum-half Bryan Redpath, joined the Sharks on a full-time academy contract after leaving Sedbergh School in 2017, the 20-year-old made a total of 22 appearances over two seasons in Manchester.
The utility-back was selected for the England U20s in his first season at Sale after impressing with the U18’s the previous year whilst studying his A-Levels at Sedbergh.
n a message to Sale supporters ahead of his move to the south-west, Redpath said: “I would like to thank everyone at Sale for their support over the last two seasons, the coaches and staff at Sale were nothing but good to me. I wish everyone at the club all the best for the remainder for the season and the future.“
