Transfer News | Ellis Genge responds to Bristol approach

Bristol Bears have failed with their bid to lure England prop, Ellis Genge, back to his hometown, according to The Rugby Paper.

Instead, Genge is reportedly close to agreeing on a new contract that will keep him at Welford Raod for another three seasons.

Bears submitted a tempting offer for the England loosehead to return to Ashton Gate next season but Neil Fissler has reported the offer was swiftly rejected.

The 24-year-old, who is nicknamed the Baby Rhino, spent three seasons with Bristol before moving to The Tigers three years ago, initially on loan before the move was made permanent.
