Transfer News: Latest on Justin Tipuric’s proposed move to Bristol

Wales flanker Justin Tipuric is increasingly likely to stay with the Ospreys after having his salary valuation increased by a Welsh rugby panel, according to Wales Online.

The report suggests Ospreys have long been optimistic he would remain at the Liberty, and the chances of such a scenario unfolding have now significantly improved, with negotiations believed to be well-advanced.

Tipuric had been heavily linked with a  £500,000-year move to Bristol Bears, while numerous French clubs, including Lyon, are also said to have been tracking him.

The 30-year-old, who currently takes home around £200,000 is now set to earn anywhere between £250,000 and £450,000 after his agent won an appeal for his wage rating to be improved.

Meanwhile, Bristol Bears are now likely to turn their attention to Exeter Chiefs back-rower Matt Kvesic.

Pat Lam’s men are likely to have competition for the talented flanker, who is out of contract in the summer, with Worcester Warriors also very interested.
