Saints are remaining tight-lipped on claims that George North has signed on at Franklin’s Gardens.

It is being widely reported that the Wales wing has agreed a two-year deal with Northampton.

North, who has one year left on his Scarlets deal, has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks.

And he has also been at the centre of a row between his club and the Welsh Rugby Union over attempts to keep him in the country.

Northampton’s interest in the player has been well documented, with chairman Leon Barwell confirming his club’s interest in the 20-year-old to the Chron last week.

But Saints will make no comment on reports the player has finally put pen to paper.
