The staggering salary Bath are ready to offer youngster Joe Cokanasiga

Powerhouse winger Joe Cokanasiga will become one of the best-paid young players in the game when he is unveiled at Bath this week.

Sportsmail has revealed the 20-year-old Fijian-born England prospect has left London Irish and agreed a three-year contract at The Rec, which will be announced in the coming days.

And Cokanasiga is in for a bumper pay-day, with the 6ft 3in, 17st 9lb flyer likely to earn in the region of £700,000 over the three years at Bath.

If over the course of this new deal he establishes himself as an England regular he could force his earnings towards seven figures by the age of 23, as the national side pays £23,000 per Test.

The sums reflect the fact that Cokanasiga is one of the hottest properties in the English game.
