England's George Ford will leave Bath at the end of the season with Freddie Burns coming the other way from Leicester to replace him.Read the full story ›
Sale will seek talks with George Ford in January after confirming their interest in recruiting the England fly-half.
Todd Blackadder, Bath's director of rugby, stated on Monday that Ford would be allowed to leave the Recreation Ground at the end of the season and the Sharks have leapt ahead of Leicester and Northampton in the race for his signature.
The 23-year-old was born in Oldham and has been linked with a move away from the west country from the moment his father Mike was sacked by Bath last summer.
Aviva Premiership regulations state that from January 1 he is permitted to talk to other clubs and Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond is hoping to open negotiations as soon as possible.
"We would be interested in anyone of George Ford's ability," Diamond told BBC North West Tonight.
"We've not had direct contact [with Bath or George], but when January 1 arrives and the transfer window opens we can start discussions if he fancies a chat."
But the bookies think Ford is most likely to stay at the Rec.
Betway are now taking bets on where the England fly-half will be at the start of the 2017/18 season.
While Leicester Tigers and Sale Sharks are the likely front-runners if he does move to another Premiership club, the bookies' overwhelming favourite is for the 23-year-old to stay at Bath, at 8/11.
