George Ford’s Transfer To Leicester Is A Record Breaking One

Leicester Tigers revealed this week that England playmaker George Ford will be returning to Welford Road this summer.

The talented outhalf makes the switch with one-year remaining on his contract, and the move will see Freddie Burns move in the opposite direction.

Ford has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave with 12 months remaining on his contract, providing his contract is bought out and a transfer fee is paid.
