Marland Yarde completes move to Sale Sharks from Harlequins

Marland Yarde’s time as a Harlequins player is over. The England wing has joined Aviva Premiership rivals Sale Sharks with immediate effect, Harlequins revealed in a statement released on Wednesday morning.

Yarde said his goodbyes to his team-mates last week and will now battle with fellow England wing Denny Solomona for a starting spot at Sale, along with recent Scotland call-up Byron McGuigan and former rugby league star Josh Charnley.

Yarde has not played for Harlequins since being dropped for disciplinary reasons before their European Champions Cup match against Wasps on Oct 22. He had previously missed two more training sessions this season, including a pre-season trip to Germany.

The winger made 81 appearances for Harlequins, scoring 27 tries, since joining in 2014 from London Irish.

The 25 year-old’s reported £250,000-a-year contract was due to expire at the end of the season and the move now allows Harlequins' director of rugby, John Kingston, to strengthen his squad immediately.

Harlequins are carrying 28 injuries heading into this weekend’s Premiership fixture against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday, and announced the signing of hooker Mike Mayhew on a three-month loan on Tuesday.

"Marland is a top player and I have a great relationship with him,” Kingston said. “We have enjoyed working together over the last three years and I want to thank him for his contribution to the club and wish him well for the future. "He’s played really well for us this year, but the decision for Harlequins to allow Marland to speak to Sale was made because I felt it was in the best interest of the club.

"Every decision I make is with the intention of doing the right thing for Harlequins football club, and that's the way it will always be. "I’m building a positive environment and culture at Harlequins, on and off the field, which I believe will ultimately allow us to challenge for honours.”
