Munster Assistant Coach Ian Costello - Keith Earls Rumour IS Just a Rumour
Munster assistant coach Ian Costello says that rumours of Keith Earls moving away from the province are exactly that - rumours.
A report in this morning's Irish Independent suggested that Premiership champions Saracens were to offer him a three year deal.
However Costello poured cold water on the speculation, telling Cork's RedFM that as far as they're concerned, the winger will be staying at the province.
"We heard the speculation this morning as well. From our point of view, that's what it is - it's a rumour, it's speculation.His negotiations are with the IRFU, he's centrally contracted, and bottom line is we want Keith here next year - he's a quality player and a quality person. So we hope his negotiations with the IRFU are successful over the next 24 hours."
