Bath deny talks with Armitage

Date published: January 29 2016

Bath have distanced themselves from a possible move to sign former England full-back Delon Armitage from Toulon.

The 32-year-old's contract with the European champions expires at the end of the season.

Armitage has been linked with a move within the Top 14 to Lyon as well as a return to the Premiership, but despite the wealth of former London Irish players found in Bath's squad it appears, for now, that Armitage will not be heading to The Rec.

"We are not in talks with Delon Armitage," a Bath spokesperson said addressing the rumours on Thursday.

Armitage has been part of Toulon's three European Cup and one Top 14 triumphs during a successful time in France, having previously spent a decade playing for Irish in the Premiership. He has won 26 caps for England.
