Bassett to Saints:

Wasps' winger Josh Bassett is reportedly involved in a move to the underachieving Aviva Premiership side Northampton Saints.

The 25-year-old has been with Wasps for over 4 years after moving from Championship side Bedford Blues, where he was a prolific try-scorer.

Sopoaga a Wasp:

Lima Sopoaga has been liked with Wasps, a move which will leave him out of contention for the 2019 Rugby World Cup with New Zealand.

The 26-year-old recently said on Twitter: "It is with a heavy heart that I announce that my family and I will be leaving NZ at the end of the 2018 season,"

Cordero in Europe:

Munster are looking to the Pumas to fill the void of Simon Zebo who is departing for Top 14 side Racing 92 at the end of the season.

They have got Argentina utility back Santiago Cordero in their sights, he has been left out the Jaguares squad for the 2018 Super Rugby competiton.

Leali'ifano's replacement:

Ulster set to ink a deal with World Cup winner Stephen Donald to replace the departing croud-favourite Christian Leali'ifano.

The 34 year-old New Zealand fly-half hasn't been offered a new contract in Super Rugby after his time in Japan so would welcome the move.
