However, in today’s issue of Midi Olympique, an in the know specialist sports paper in France, it’s been suggested that Tuilagi, in a stunning u-turn, will remain at Welford Road.
Their report goes onto suggest that the 27-year-old will sign a three-year contract with the Tigers, which ensures his England career will continue after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
