Wales fly-half Dan Biggar is set to leave current club Ospreys to join the Northampton Saints next summer. The 27-year-old, who recently toured with the British and Irish Lions, has made over 200 appearances for the Ospreys, racking up an impressive 2,052 points since joining the club in 2007.

Dan Biggar has been a key figure for Wales over the last decade. Since being selected in 2008, the Swansea local has won 56 caps for his country. In agreeing to join Northampton however, Biggar has placed a huge question mark over his international future – with Wales coach Warren Gatland only permitted to allow four non-Welsh club players to join the national side.

“I would like to thank everyone at the Ospreys and the Welsh Rugby Union who have supported and helped me throughout my career, and an extra special thank you to the fans who have helped and supported me through highs and lows,” said Biggar.

“I hope my passion for the shirt and people of this region has shone through in my performances and I would love to leave on a high note with some silverware.”

Referencing his international future, Biggar added: “I also remain fully committed to Wales and achieving the best I can every time I pull on the red shirt.”
