Vincent Koch transfer saga has unexpected turnaround

World Cup-winning prop Vincent Koch is set to stay at Saracens despite their relegation to the Championship in a dramatic turnaround.

It was only Monday that The Rugby Paper reported that the tighthead was close to joining Sale Sharks.

However, according to the Evening Standard, the Springbok will join Jamie George and Elliot Daly at Saracens next year amid uncertainty over the future of plenty of other players.

They report that ‘Koch discussed a move to Sale and Scarlets’ but is understood to have decided to remain with Saracens until the end of the 2021/22 season and will not go on loan next season.
