Leigh Halfpenny is poised to sign a deal with the Scarlets , reports Steve James of The Times.
The deal, partly funded by the Welsh Rugby Union, will bring the former Cardiff Blues player back to Wales but to Parc y Scarlets and not Cardiff Arms Park.
Halfpenny is now out of contract with his current club Toulon and the London based paper reports that he will be signing a dual contract between the Scarlets and the Welsh Rugby Union.
The news would come as a great boost for the Scarlets with Halfpenny becoming an automatic replacement for Liam Williams, who has left to join Saracens.
