Transfer News: Rhys Webb confirms move back to Wales

Rhys Webb is heading home to the Ospreys.

The scrum half has signed a two-year-deal to return to the Liberty Stadium for next season.

Bridgend-born Webb will leave France at the end of this season and return to Wales in the summer.

Webb spent a decade with the Ospreys and will leave France a year early after signing for Toulon in 2017.

“It’s just great to come back where rugby all started for me,” said Webb.

“I am really looking forward to the challenge and fighting for the Ospreys jersey again.

“I have loved my time in Toulon but it’s a relief to come home to the Ospreys, it’s where my family are, where I was brought up, and where rugby all started for me.

“To return to play for my home region again is just really special for me and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to do that again.

“I have been away for two years, and I know there have been a lot of changes and that there are a lot of exciting young players coming through and some familiar faces too, I am looking forward to the challenge.”
