Premiership wing turns down move to Wasps

EXETER Chiefs speedster Olly Woodburn has rejected the chance to move to Wasps and will be staying with the former Premiership champions.

Wasps boss Dai Young had wanted Woodburn, 27, to move to Coventry next season as he seeks a replacement for Christian Wade who left the club earlier this season.

He has, however, turned his back on the chance of relocating to Warwickshire in favour of staying in Devon.

Woodburn has developed into one of the best finishers in the Premiership after moving to the Chiefs in 2015 after starting his career at the Rec with Bath.

The Bristol-born star is struggling to break into Eddie Jones set-up despite out-performing nearly every other English- born winger in the Premiership.

He will remain with the Chiefs for the next two seasons, joining a number of  players who have committed themselves to the club.
