The regular season may be over, but Gallagher Premiership clubs still put the last thing on their squads before next season, and there are still plenty of deals being made.
With Bristol Bears back on the top table of European rugby, playing in the Gallagher Premiership and the European Challenge Cup, we look at all the latest transfer news and rumors from them and their rivals.
London Irish coming in to England backrow star
London Irish seeks to make a late move to land England and Newcastle Falcons backrow star Mark Wilson according to The Rugby Paper.
The Exiles are seeking a big name replacement for the injured Sean B & B, who is switching to the promotional Gallagher Premiership site from Leinster, but is set to have an operation on a hip injury with a return to play date unknown.
Sales Sharks were the leading contenders to sign Wilson, who was appointed to England until the end of the last season on a loan agreement that would allow Falcon to return to Newcastle after a season, provided they earn an immediate return to Premiership after a season in the championship.
Despite having the strongest team in Premiership, allowing them to complete a league and the European Champions Cup double, Saracens is reportedly also interested in landing the strong backrower.
Wasps to sign Newcastle Falcons flyer
Relegated Newcastle Falcons are set to lose one of their young talented talents according to recent reports.
Rugby Paper reports wizard Zach Kilbridge, 24, will be announced as a Wasps player this week.
Kilbridge signed a new two-year contract with Newcastle in April, but his new deal allegedly included a release clause if the club was referred.
Veps has already signed release Sale Sharks wings Paolo Odogwu as they appear to reshape their backline for a number of high-profile departures, including Christian Wade's wings to the NFL, Elliot Daly to Saracens and Willie Le Roux to Japan.
Bristol associated with moving to Wales great
According to Rugby-paper Bristol Bears is considering making a move to British and Irish Lions major Alun Wyn Jones.
The Wales captain, who remains one of the world's top ranks despite being 33, becoming 34 in September, has gathered 134 international caps in a glittering career filled with trophies and awards.
The 6ft 5in, 17 stone lock was named the 2019 Six Nations Championship Championship and has won three Grand Slams with Wales.
He has been on three Lions tours and is one of only seven players who have beaten South Africa, Australia and New Zealand as a lion.
He is an out-of-out leader and world-class talent, but his current deal on the Pro14 side Ospreys will expire in October, meaning he would be the free agent after this year's Rugby World Cup. Jones is a club man so far, playing for the Welsh region since his debut in 2005.
However, Rich Gallagher Premiership and French Top 14 clubs have apparently shown an interest in the lock with Leicester Tigers strongly associated with a move for the Welsh who was previously understood to be on Bath's radar.
