Wasps Director of rugby Dai Young hits out at allegations of turmoil within club ranks following Daily Mail news story.
News broke late yesterday evening in the Daily Mail that several of Wasps biggest names were at risk of leaving the club over 'broken promises'.
Frustrations over the delayed construction of training facilities and backlogged image rights payments are reported to be at the forefront of the issues disrupting harmony within the playing camp.
England stars Elliot Daly and Joe Launchbury are two key figures thought to be losing patience with their side.
Young released a statement earlier today dispelling the rumours broken by Mail journalist Chris Foy.
“I have been made aware of an article published today which makes a number of assertions regarding our current situation." Young said.
“The construction of new training facilities is taking longer than originally hoped. We had a couple of projects which reached a pretty advanced stage but unfortunately did not come to fruition along the way, but no-one doubts this is the number one priority project for our development team.
“I know a further location is now under serious consideration and that this project could take a big step forward in the very near future.
“Since September ten of our senior squad have signed new contracts. This includes Joe Launchbury, Elliot Daly and only this week Dan Robson.
“A number of other players have also signed new deals since we moved from Acton to Coventry at the start of last season.
“Clearly we are all looking forward to being in a permanent home, and in the meantime we are all fully focused on the remainder of the season and are pushing hard to reach the play-offs for a third consecutive year.”
The media ping-pong will undoubtedly continue over the following days, with many journalists digging into the multiple failed applications over new state of the art training facilities and a backlog of image rights yet to be paid to the players.
