Te'o to leave Worcester
England centre Ben Te'o is to leave Premiership outfit Worcester Warriors when the current season comes to an end.
The 32-year-old became the club's highest-paid player when he made the switch from Leinster in 2016 but hasn't featured much for the Sixways outfit over the last three years due to a string of injuries and England commitments.
In the time he has won 20 caps for England and two for the British & Irish Lions, the rugby league convert has made 33 appearances for Worcester.
Despite his lack of action for the Warriors, it is understood that several Premiership clubs and a collection of French Top 14 sides are keen on Te'o and will make their moves this summer when he leaves Worcester.
The announcement that Te'o would be moving on came alongside the news that Warriors flanker Dewald Potgieter would be retiring at the end of the season.
The former South Africa international made 20 appearances before suffering a serious a knee injury in 2017 and has announced he will be walking away from rugby this summer.
Worcester have also confirmed the departures of six other players, back-row forwards Alafoti Faosiliva, Carl Kirwan and Zac Xiourouppa, loose-head prop Jack Cosgrove and two members of the Warriors academy, Mason Tonks and Nick Rigby.
