Northampton Saints full-back and Former England man Ben Foden is looking likely to move across the channel when his contract at Franklin’s Gardens expires in the summer.
It’s understood that the 32-year-old’s CV has been circulated around France with Bordeaux coming to the front of the queue.
The French club are also interested in signing England winger Marland Yarde from Harlequins, which would end his chances of playing in the World Cup in 2019.
Foden at this stage is reportedly keeping his options open and would be interested in a return to Sale if that opportunity was presented to him.
Saints plan to replace Foden with Leicester star Telusa Veainu. Read more on that rumour HERE.
