Transfer Rumours: Leicester Tigers star leaves with immediate effect
There have been rumours for what seems like months now that Dom Barrow is leaving Leicester Tigers, but there has been another development in the last 24 hours.
Linked with a move back to Newcastle or to Sale Sharks earlier this season, Northampton Saints are now the favourites to sign the 24-year-old.
Barrow also reportedly had a training ground altercation with club captain Tom Youngs earlier in the season and the relationship maintains fractured between the pair.
Rugby Inside Line tweeted last night that they: “Have been told by a source that he has left the club with immediate effect.”

Barrow is a former England U20 representative, who was part of the Junior World Championship-winning side of 2013, playing alongside the likes of Anthony Watson, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie.
He followed up success at the competition with a move to Newcastle Falcons from Yorkshire Carnegie, where he impressed for two seasons and earned a move south to Leicester.
