Devoto ‘weighing up his options’

Date published: January 13 2016

In demand Bath centre Ollie Devoto has yet to decide whether to stay at the Rec or move elsewhere, forwards coach Neal Hatley has revealed.

The versatile playmaker, who has impressed in the Premiership during his early career, has been linked with a switch to Rob Baxter's Exeter.

But Hatley admits that the decision is now in the 22-year-old's court, as Bath have put their "best foot forward" with their new contract offer.

"We've not really heard from Devo about that, so he's still weighing up his options," he told the Bath Chronicle about the club's Academy product.

"I can't speak highly enough of him, not just as a player but as a person as well.

"Young English players who can play a number of positions are like gold dust.

"We've put our best foot forward with Devo in terms of what we are offering, and we really hope he stays."
