TRANSFER NEWS: England stalwart James Haskell has confirmed his depatrure from Premiership side Wasps at teh end of the season.

The 32-year-old, who has made 75 appearances for England as well as playing for the British Lions, is yet to decide his next career move.

He said: "I have had a fantastic career at Wasps and would like to think I have played a part in the club’s success over the years.

"I am looking forward to the next phase of my career; I wish all the players and officials at Wasps all the best for the future and will give my usual 100 percent for the rest of the season,"

The club’s director of rugby Dai Young paid tribute to the 32-year-old England international’s service to the club.

"Hask goes back a long way with Wasps," he said.

"Since starting in the academy as a teenager he has played around 200 games including a spell as club captain, which is a great achievement.

"I have no doubt whatsoever, given his character and loyalty to this club, that he will remain fully committed until the end of the current campaign.

"On behalf of everyone at Wasps I’d like to thank James for his efforts and wish him well for the future."
