Wasp scrum-half Ben Vellacott

Wasps’ Ben Vellacott ready to relocate to Scotland?

EDINBURGH are speaking to Wasps scrum-half Ben Vellacott about switching to the Scottish capital when his Wasps contract runs out next summer.

Vellacott’s Wasps career has struggled to take off after he suffered a knee ligament injury shortly after moving from Gloucester.

The 25-year-old product of Exeter Chiefs academy is a former Scotland U20 international after qualifying through his mother.

Vellacott has fallen behind Will Porter and Sam Wolstenholme in Wasps’ pecking order despite making a full recovery and is expected to leave the club this summer for a new challenge.

Meanwhile, Wasps have done a deal to sign former Caldy, Yorkshire Carnegie and Ealing Trailfinders prop Elliot Millar Mills.

The tighthead, 25, moved to Ealing from Edinburgh where he spent a season as understudy to WP Nel and Wasps have moved quickly to snap him up.
