Josh Bassett: Bright future predicted
Wasps have agreed a deal to sign Bedford's prolific young winger Josh Bassett.
The England U20 international, who has scored 11 tries this season, will make the step up from the Championship in the summer.
Bassett was the Championship's leading try-scorer last term, and Wasps director of rugby Dai Young is predicting a big future for the 21-year-old.
He told the club website: "Josh fits the bill perfectly for what we are trying to achieve here.
"He's young, he's very ambitious, he's English and he'll be an excellent addition to our set up. We have some very talented wingers in our squad but he's got a big future and having impressed hugely at Championship level we're looking forward to seeing what he can do with us."
