London Irish star Joseph is lined up for move to Bath

Jonathan Joseph looks set to be the next London Irish star to leave the club, with a move to Bath all but secured.

The England centre is likely to team up again with former Exiles head coach Toby Booth, who is in charge of the first team at The Rec, working under director of rugby Gary Gold.

Joseph, 21, made his debut for England as a substitute in the first Test against South Africa in Durban last June, before starting in the next two Tests.

An ankle injury ruled him out of starting against Fiji last month, although he managed to claim a fourth cap with an appearance from the bench in the epic victory over New Zealand.

Bath see Joseph as an exciting addition to a back line that includes centre Matt Banahan, full-back Nick Abendanon, stand-off Stephen Donald and winger Tom Biggs.
