Wasps director of rugby Dai Young has responded to reports that winger Josh Bassett is set to move to Northampton Saints at the end of the season
Young, who recently signed a new contract at the club himself, refused to be drawn on Bassett’s future.
According to multiple sources, @WaspsRugby flyer Josh Bassett (out of contract in May) to @SaintsRugby is reportedly a done deal and he will replace the departing George North at Franklin’s Gardens for the 2018-19 season #TransferTalk @premrugby pic.twitter.com/Pt6v769DyR

“He won’t be the only one who is rumoured to be leaving,” revealed Young to the Coventry Telegraph, “it’s the same about people rumoured to be coming in.
“When the time is right we’ll announce who is leaving, without a shadow of a doubt we’ll have players leaving, that’s professional sport.
“So we’ll certainly have players leaving and we’ll have players coming in as well so when the time is right to do that we will.
“But it’s not a surprise, if it’s Josh Bassett today, it’ll be somebody else tomorrow. We get linked with lots of players really and until it’s announced it’s just speculation.”
