Sale yet to make contact with Ford

Date published: January 10 2017

George Ford has not yet been approached by Sale Sharks about a potential move away from Bath.

Ford is under contract at Bath until 2018, but is understood to have a break clause in that deal for this summer and Sale are keen to talk to him.

“If we get an opportunity we will,” Sale Director of Rugby Steve Diamond told the BBC Sport.

“He’s still in contract with Bath so we don’t know where that is up to.”
