Transfer Rumours: Wasps stars want to leave due to ‘broken promises’
Wasps face the growing threat of an exodus of their leading stars, with a mutinous mood in the squad over ‘broken promises’ relating to late payments and new facilities.
The Mail Online reported last night that Elliot Daly, Joe Launchbury and Christian Wade are expected to leave when their contracts expire unless Wasps address their grievances.
Sources told the publication that the discontent and resentment have become so heightened that some fear there will be a flashpoint before most of those deals run out.
They suggest the primary gripes among players and coaching staff relate to inadequate training facilities and the backlog in image-rights payments, which are thought to account for about 15 per cent of overall salaries.
