ENGLAND FLY-HALF George Ford has agreed to rejoin Leicester Tigers for the start of next season in a deal which will see Freddie Burns move to Bath.

Ford has been linked with a switch away from Bath since the Premiership club sacked his father Mike Ford as head coach last May and the Tigers emerged as front-runners for the 23-year-old.
