Dan Biggar is believed to be attracting the interest of Northampton
The Wales fly-half is on a dual contract and the WRU
Early signs suggest they WILL NOT release him for a transfer fee
Wales and Ospreys fly-half Dan Biggar is believed to be attracting the interest of Northampton Saints and has held discussions with the WRU over his future.
The Premiership side are on the hunt for a new a No.10 with Stephen Myler now 32 and JJ Hanrahan heading back to Munster at the end of the season.
Saints, according to Wales Online, have homed in on Biggar, the scorer of more than 2,000 points for Pro 12 side Ospreys.
The English club have shown with the acquisition of Louis Picamoles and George North before him that they are prepared to do what it takes to attract big names to Franklin’s Gardens.
Only today, Northampton have added experienced Wallaby centre Rob Horne to their roster for next season. Click here to read more.
Biggar has now reportedly met with the Welsh Rugby Union to discuss the situation last week over the proposed move.
But the governing body and the region at this stage are believed to have ruled the 52-cap man will not be going anywhere.
The Ospreys already have fellow Wales international Sam Davies on their books with James Hook also returning next term.
Nevertheless, the region obviously still value the 27-year-old highly and are in no hurry to see him leave anytime soon.
