Transfer News: Rhys Webb set for shock Premiership switch

Three Gallagher Premiership clubs are preparing a move for fthe ormer Wales and current Toulon scrum-half Rhys Webb.

The Rugby Paper reports the 30-year-old has a year remaining on his contract.

Webb’s time in France has not been entirely easy with his family returning to Wales after failing to settle on the South coast of France and the scrum half ineligible for international duty.

A return to a Welsh region would likely be his favoured destination so the 33 cap international could add to his tally under the new management team of Wayne Pivac.

However, Exeter is understood to be on the search for an international standard scrum-half following the departure of Nic White who returned to Australia to be able to represent the Wallabies in Japan.

According to the Rugby Paper both Bath and Bristol Bears are also both considering their playmaker options although Bristol director of rugby Pat Lam handed number nines Harry Randall and Andy Uren contract extensions this year, keeping them at the club until 2022.
