Saracens seek to slash budget by moving on from Liam Williams

SARACENS are searching for a winger suggesting they are not confident of hanging onto Liam Williams.

Williams, who helped Saracens complete a Premiership and European Cup double last season and Wales win a Grand Slam, moved to London to be nearer his girlfriend.

But the Ospreys want him back in south Wales and he has been made an offer by Toulon for next season.

Saracens were interested in signing Maika Sivo but he has since signed a contract extension with Parramatta Eels until 2021.

But losing Williams and Joel Kpoku, who is interesting Northampton Saints, would help them to reduce the playing budget if it is demanded.
