Well, it is time for some exciting transfer news and rumors.
We are going to bring you some exciting rumors regarding the rugby transfer market. Let’s find out. Apparently, Leicester Tigers are all set to sign Carl Fearns, who is former flanker at Bath. Indeed, it is a surprise move if it is true.
Speaking of Fearns, this 27 year old player left The Rec at 2015. He left the team to join Lyon. Lyon is in the top 14 as we speak. But that wasn’t the case for this French rugby team, as they were in the second division before.
Why did he sign a 2-year deal with Lyon? Well, he wasn’t pleased with Bath’s decision to have Sam Burgess in their back row. Indeed, it was a shocking move for many. Now this talented player seems to be making a comeback with Leicester Tigers, as per the rumors.
According to reports, he has always been keen on representing England National team. Leicester Tigers are eager to sign him at the end of the French season. Recently Fearns said that he wants to play for the country again. He quoted the example of James Haskell, who played for the country as well as in France. Yes, many players have done that in the past. Leicester Tiger seems to be doing everything to snatch this player who is always in demand.
Fears said that, like his pal Andrew Sheridan, he likes the idea of playing in France. But his true goal is to play for the country and be part of the Premiership. However, it seems like Bath is also trying to woo him. Since Bath has recruited former star Leroy Houston, it doesn’t seem like Fearns will join Bath as he hates playing second fiddle to other former stars. Since he badly wants to play for England, he wouldn’t want to be part of Bath.
