Saracens line up Tigers and England Winger Jonny May - reports

Saracens are reportedly eyeing up a move for Leicester and England star Jonny May.


The England speedster is out of contract at the end of the current season and looks set to leave the Tigers, who have prioritised new deals for George Ford and Ellis Genge.

According to The Rugby Paper, Tigers are set to splash out around £1m a season on the pair who had been attracting the interest of Bristol Bears. 

Saracens were also thought to be interested in May while he was at Gloucester before Leicester moved quickly to seal a deal that saw Ed Slater move in the other direction.

Now, Saracens could make an attempt to May for next season. Saracens already have a large number of England internationals on their books and May could help fill the void left by Wales star Liam Williams, who has agreed to join the Scarlets at the end of the season.

According to the report, Williams is unlikely to be the only departure from the club with Joel Kpoku set for Northampton Saints and Michel Rhodes also out of contract.

Veteran stars Richard Wigglesworth and Brad Barritt are likely to retire opening up space in the salary cap for the England star. There have also been rumours over a possible return to Gloucester for May but that seems highly unlikely at this stage.
