Jamie Heaslip Has Made A Decision On His Future
Jamie Heaslip is going nowhere.
Jamie Heaslip has agreed a new deal to remain at Leinster under national contract until July 2020. The number eight, who recently turned 33, reached terms with the IRFU several weeks ago but was waiting, as with his previous contract, for a top-up payment via Leinster.
The new contract, while agreed by all parties, has yet to be signed. Heaslip was recently quoted in saying that he was open to all possibilities and would perhaps consider a move away from Ireland at the end of his current deal.
Heaslip’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, but once this new contract is signed, it looks like he will indeed finish his career in Dublin. The back-rower signed a deal back in 2014 with the IRFU and Leinster that was said to have made him Ireland’s highest paid player.
He is said to have turned down a big money move to Toulon back then and was reportedly the target of several big spending Premiership sides this time round.
