Cian Healy weighing up options after receiving offer to join Worcester - report

Is Cian Healy about to join fellow Leinster prop Marty Moore in announcing that he intends to leave Leinster at the end of the season?
The Irish Times are reporting that the loosehead prop has been offered a three-year deal to join Aviva Premiership strugglers Worcester Warriors and it exceeds the deal currently being tabled by the IRFU.
One of 14 centrally contracted players, Healy's deal expires at the end of the season and his talks are with the union rather than his province, as was the case for Marty Moore and Simon Zebo.
The report claims that negotiations are at a very early stage but the news will certainly throw the gauntlet down to David Nucifora and the IRFU.
The 28-year-old has been dogged by injuries in recent years but a move to a club that has won two games from 10 this season in the Aviva Premiership would hardly suit a player who harbours international and Lions ambitions in the coming years.
