Northampton Saints full-back Ben Foden says he may consider his options given a lack of contract talks with the club.
The 32-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of the season but with no director of rugby in place, his future remains uncertain.
“The longer it goes on the more you become enticed to go and try different things or look elsewhere,” said Foden.
“It’s difficult to do at the moment because there’s no-one there to do the negotiating and the contracts.”
It’s now looking increasingly likely that the fullback will move across the channel when his contract at Franklin’s Gardens expires in the summer.
Foden at this stage is understood to be keeping his options open and would be interested in a return to Sale if that opportunity was presented to him.
