Wasps and Springbok fullback Willie le Roux is reportedly a sought-after recruit by Jake White’s Japanese club Toyota Verblitz.
According to Netwerk24, White and Le Roux are in advanced talks about the player staying on in Japan at the conclusion of next year’s World Cup.
The 29-year-old is currently contracted to Wasps, but the current season, which kicked off this past weekend, is believed to be his last in England.
If Le Roux joins White at Verblitz, it will be his second stint in Japan, having also played there between 2015 and 2017 for the Canon Eagles.
