Bath Stalwart Matt Banahan Agrees Deal To Move To Rival Premiership Club
On the move.
Bath stalwart Matt Banahan is set to depart the Premiership side at the end of the current season in favour of a move to rivals Gloucester, according to a report in The Rugby Paper this morning.
Banahan joined Bath from the London Irish academy in 2006, and is the club’s current longest serving player. He signed a five-year contract back in 2013, but has been unable to agree an extension.
The report suggests he’s been offered similar money to his current deal, and a two-year extension. But Banahan has rejected the deal in favour of a move to Gloucester.
Bristol were also said to be interested in Banahan’s signature, but it appears the Cherry and Whites have won the race.
