Transfer Rumours: Wasps close to confirming new signing
The Rugby Paper has reported today that Wasps have completed the signing of talented fly-half Billy Searle from Bristol.
Searle, who is out of contract at the end of the season, will join as understudy to All Black Lima Sopoaga, who also arrives at the Ricoh Arena this summer following the announcement that Danny Cipriani is departing.
The 21-year-old decided to turn down a new deal at Ashton Gate despite being a regular in their march towards the Championship title.
Meanwhile, Bristol is reportedly close to completing the signing of two scrum-halves: Gloucester’s Harry Randall and Edinburgh’s Sam Hidalgo-Clyne.
