Northampton Saints has announced that England coach Sam Vesty will make the switch to Franklin's Gardens from Worcester Warriors this summer.

The 36 year old former Leicester Tigers and Bath Rugby utility back has been cutting his teeth at Sixways as a coach since retiring from playing in 2013. He'll become Saints' Attack Coach next season.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining a massive Club in Northampton Saints, and to be given the opportunity to work with and learn from Chris Boyd. This is a brilliant opportunity and one I jumped at taking.There are already a top-quality set of backs in Saints' squad, and the prospect of adding the likes of Dan Biggar and Taqele Naiyaravoro to those ranks is thrilling as a coach."
