Prop Marty Moore is poised to become the latest departure from Leinster as he has reportedly agreed a move to the Aviva Premiership.

The Irish Times reports today that the 24-year-old was offered a three-year offer from Wasps, with Leinster offering a two-year deal.

Wasps, who are in the same Champions Cup pool as the Irish province, have been courting Moore with head coach Dai Young a fan of the dynamic prop.

It is thought the deal will be confirmed in the coming weeks and will represent another blow for head coach Leo Cullen, who will be without the service of Ben T'eo (Worcester) and Ian Madigan (Bordeaux/Begles) next season.

Moore has made 56 appearances for Leinster since his debut in 2012 and has earned 10 international caps, all of them as replacements in Ireland’s last two title-winning Six Nations campaigns.

Moore missed out on a place in Joe Schmidt's World Cup squad due to a broken metatarsal.
