Report: Dan Lydiate deal close to being struck

A report claims that Racing Metro flanker Dan Lydiate is close to returning to Welsh rugby, with the Ospreys and the Scarlets said to be interested in his services.

Dan Lydiate is reportedly hoping to return to Welsh rugby within the next two weeks.

The 26-year-old joined French side Racing Metro from Newport Gwent Dragons last year, although he is said to be keen on leaving the club along with Mike Phillips and Jamie Roberts.

The South Wales Evening Post claims that a deal is now close to being completed, which will see Lydiate return to his homeland on a dual contract.

It is not yet known where the Wales flanker will ply his trade, with the Ospreys and the Scarlets both linked with the player.
