George North's agent has revealed that Northampton Saints are in talks with Scarlets to sign the Wales winger.
The giant three-quarter, who helped his country retain their Six Nations crown with a record 30-3 victory over England in Cardiff, has one year left on his contract with the west Wales region.
The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to France, but his agent, Christian Abt confirmed discussions are being held with the Saints.
Abt said: "There has been an approach between the two clubs to discuss a possible transfer. Ideally, it will resolve itself in the next couple of weeks."
