Transfer Rumours: Fourth English club enter the race to sign James Haskell

The Rugby Paper has reported that Worcester Warriors are weighing up a potential bid to bring England flanker James Haskell to Sixways when he leaves Wasps at the end of the season.

Gloucester, Norhampton and Bristol, who look set to win promotion from the Championship, were the three clubs thought to be already in the running for the 32-year-old.

Abroad: Japanese clubs, Toulouse and Glasgow Warriors have also been linked to the flanker in recent weeks

Wasps have confirmed in recent weeks that both Haskell and Danny Cipriani will be ending their second spells at the club and departing in the summer.

Haskell is keen to stay in the Premiership in a bid to ensure he remains part of Eddie Jones’ England plans in the run up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

A move abroad would probably be more lucrative for the back-rower, but would ruled him out of international selection.


Cipriani nevertheless, who is no longer in Jones’ plans, is reportedly heading to Japan on a contract that will see the fly-half paid £50,000 per game.
