Jamie Roberts is in talks with the Dragons to return to regional rugby in Wales for the first time in more than seven years following a brief stint with the Stormers in South Africa, according to a report by the BBC.
The 33-year-old former British and Irish Lions centre, who has been capped 94 times by Wales, left Cardiff Blues back in 2013 in a big-money move, before going to have stints in the Premiership with Bath and Harlequins.
An interesting move to the Stormers came about at the beginning of the year, but his time in South Africa was cut short after just one game as a result of the ongoing world crisis.
A move to the Dragons could see him form a deadly partnership in midfield with current Wales centre Nick Tompkins who has signed for the Welsh outfit on a season-long loan from soon-to-be relegated Saracens.
