Northampton Saints: keeping Louis Picamoles with Montpellier

Northampton Saints do their best to keep Louis Picamoles with Montpellier. Being on the verge of capturing No 8, they’re underpinned by the French rugby union.

With just two years left on Picamoles’s contract, Montpellier are expected to offer a mind-blowing transfer fee for the purpose of bringing the sportsman aged 31 back to the rugby club where he began his career.

They’ve just hired All Blacks fly-half Aaron Cruden as well as Ulster scrum-half Ruan Pienaar. Then, they appointed Vern Cotter, Scotland coach as Jake White’s primary substitute. According to reports in the French press, ex-South Africa No 8 Piers Spies could be employed in a deal for Picamoles as a makeweight.

Tony Hewitt, Northampton chairman made an attempt to play down speculation simultaneously unable to deny that the clubs were involved in talks. He told that commenting on rumors is what they can never do. Instead, they prefer dealing with true facts. Two years are left on Lousis’ contract at Northampton, and they’re proud of having such a skilled player in the squad.
