Transfer Rumours: Freddie Burns set to depart Bath for Premiership rivals

Bath fly-half Freddie Burns has been rumoured to have been linked with Premiership rival Wasps by two sources, according to Rugby Inside Line.

This move comes after Billy Searle announced he would be leaving the Coventry based club to join Worcester Warriors earlier this week.

Burns returned to Bath Rugby, where he started his career in the Academy, for the 2017/18 season. The fly-half joined from Leicester Tigers where he had scored over 500 points in his three seasons in the East Midlands.

The former Beechen Cliff School pupil has won five caps for England, with his debut coming in a 38-21 victory against New Zealand in December 2012. A play-making, intelligent fly-half, Burns brought a wealth of experience to the Bath ranks.

Come the end of the 2018/19 season, Burns had made 47 appearances in Blue, Black and White.
