Speculation mounts over Alun Wyn Jones' future

Wales’ Grand Slam winning captain and lock Alun Wyn Jones’ future has been a hot topic recently with fans speculating on his next move with his current contract expiring at the end of the season.


The 33-year-old is currently a one-club man having spent his entire career with Ospreys and has not yet opted for a more lucrative contract elsewhere.

However, it looks as if he may take up a contract outside of Wales ahead of next season with many Welsh fans feeling that the 125-cap lock deserves a move away in the final years of his career.

 
 
If he were to leave Wales, Jones would still be eligible to represent Wales as he fulfils the 60-cap threshold required.
 
 
With outgoing Wales coach With Warren Gatland set to coach the British and Irish Lions on the tour to South Africa in 2021, Jones is seen as a favourite to lead the side.
 
 
 
 
A number of clubs across Europe have been linked to snap up the veteran's services with the likes of Harlequins and Leicester Tigers suggested as possible destinations while a lucarative deal in France could be more favourable for Jones.
 
 
 
Another possibility could be a big-money move to Japan which could extend Jones' career. 
 
 






 


While a large part of rugby public think that Jones should cash in on a deal abroad, former Osprey and Welsh speedster Shane Williams thinks the second rower should stay at Ospreys.
