Cian Healy latest player to be linked with a move abroad

A report today suggests prop Cian Healy has been offered a move to English side Worcester Warriors, the latest in a line of Irish stars to be linked with moves abroad.

The Aviva Premiership side have apparently offered the loosehead prop a far better deal than is currently on the table from the IRFU, despite him being out of contract at the end of the season.

This latest rumour follows suggestions that Keith Earls and Simon Zebo were looking at moves abroad - before both signed renewed deals committing them to the IRFU and Munster.

Healy is currently considering the offer, according to the Irish Times, with contract negotiations between him and the IRFU not at an advanced stage.

The 28-year-old has 56 international cap and 141 caps for Leinster. His loss would be another blow to the province after already losing the services of Ian Madigan and Marty Moore abroad.
