James Haskell Has Found Himself A New Club – And He’s Staying In England
England and Wasps flanker James Haskell looks to have finally found himself a new club ahead of next season.
Haskell’s contract with Wasps is up at the end of the season with the Coventry based outfit opting not to extend it. Dai Young’s side instead chose to sign Hurricanes captain Brad Shields, who was recently fast tracked into the England set-up.
The Lions tourist has made it clear over the past couple of months that he wishes to remain in the Premiership, as he battles for a spot in Eddie Jone’s Rugby World Cup squad next year.
And it looks like he’s got his wish, with Daily Mail rugby correspondent Chris Foy reporting that Haskell has signed a deal with Northampton Saints that will soon be officially announced.
