This transfer rumour is doing the rounds again...

Bath are trying to sign Taulupe Faletau after the World Cup to continue the exodus of leading Wales players to the Aviva Premiership.

The 24-year-old Lions No 8 has another full season to run on his current contract with the Newport Gwent Dragons, who have this week indicated that they are 'extremely keen' to retain his services.

However, Sportsmail understands that the Tongan-born player is increasingly likely to agree a move to The Rec in the autumn, which would require Bath to pay a transfer fee.

Hooper Commits to Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby is thrilled to announce that Club Captain Stuart Hooper will continue at the Recreation Ground next season.

Hooper has turned out an incredible 174 times for the Club since making his debut in 2008. He has been at the helm of a Bath side which this season has recorded some famous victories for the Club, including an exceptional Champions Cup win in Toulouse in January.

"Stuart represents everything that's good about Bath Rugby," said Head Coach Mike Ford. "I've said before that he's the best captain I've ever worked with. You couldn't ask for a better leader out there on the field and I’m looking forward to working with him again next season."

“I’m more eager than ever to carry on the good work that we’ve started at the Club,” said Hooper. “We’re getting better year on year and I’ve no doubt we’re closer than ever to achieving something great here at Bath Rugby.”

Evans delighted to be joining Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby will next season welcome the arrival of scrum-half Jonathan Evans from Newport Gwent Dragons, the Club can today confirm.

The 22-year-old, who hails from the Rhymney Valley in South Wales, has represented his country at U18 and U20 level. A prodigious talent, he made his debut for Dragons aged just 17, making him the youngest player to ever represent the region.

"I'm delighted to be joining Bath Rugby next season," said Evans, who recently helped the Dragons beat Irish giants Leinster. "Playing for my home region since I was a teenager is something I'll always be extremely proud of, and I'm hoping to join Bath next season having finished on a high with the Dragons."

"Having known Jonny since he was a youngster and seen his development for myself, I know he'll fit right in here at Bath," said Darren Edwards, who coached Evans at Dragons and with Wales U20s. "He brings a spark to the game and he's very much at an exciting stage of his career. He's joining a Club that has a fantastic forward pack and he'll thrive on playing off such a strong platform."
