- French outlet claims fly-half in advanced transfer talks
- England captain has stepped back from international duty
Racing 92 have denied a report in France that Owen Farrell will be leaving Saracens for the Top 14 club in the summer, but in a carefully worded statement did not refute that talks with the England fly-half were taking place.
At around 4.30pm on Friday the respected French news website Midi Olympique dropped a bombshell suggesting the Saracens captain would be crossing the Channel on a two-year deal to join South Africa’s World Cup-winning captain, Siya Kolisi, as well as England teammate Henry Arundell, in the French capital.
