Bath and Leicester yesterday announced that former Tigers man George Ford is set to go back to his old club at the end of the season from the Somerset side.
It was announced today to The Times that Ford’s transfer fee is a sum of £500,000; this being a new record transfer fee for a player moving between 2 British clubs. Ford announced he wanted to leave the club after his dad was sacked last year, with 3 years still to play out on his contract.
Most would see Ford as one of the brightest talents in British Rugby, but is he worth half a million pounds? Who’s looking forward to seeing Ford back at his old stomping ground?
