The Bath Chronicle have reported that Bath are tracking Ben Te’o and may make a move for the British & Irish Lions centre in the next week.
“Bath are interested in signing the eight-cap England centre.” wrote Dan Evans.
“My information is that the 30-year-old’s future at Worcester Warriors is not as watertight as it might be.”
Time is running out before the Premiership starts, but Bath Director of rugby Todd Blackadder is still playing it cool when it comes to the seemingly never-ending search for a new centre.
“It’s still a work in progress,” he said when asked for the umpteenth time how the hunt was going. “Fingers crossed, we’ll get one soon.”
Yes, Te’o is under contract but so were George Ford, Freddie Burns and Jonny May, who all moved clubs over the past few months.
