Worcester Warriors is set to secure the services of Steve Diamond on a consultancy role according to reports.
This will mark a return back to the Premiership for the 53-year-old after stepping down from the Sale Sharks' director of rugby role in December last year.
The Daily Mail have reported that Diamond will be aiding the Worcester team management and head coach Jonathan Thomas as they look to build with new group of players after a disappointing start to the Gallagher Premiership season where they managed two wins from eight games and are positioned 12th with only Bath Rugby behind them.
The report added that a formal announcement is expected next week.
Diamond had worked with England Saxons, Saracens and Russia in the past and was associated with Sale Sharks for almost a decade before making an exit last year with Alex Sanderson replacing him.
With Worcester Director of Rugby Alan Solomons' contract with the club expiring at the end of the ongoing season, Diamond could well be eyeing a long-term association with the club.
