Gavin Henson has agreed a deal to move back to Wales to play for the Newport Gwent Dragons, according to the the Express.
Henson has found his opportunities limited at The Rec this season since moving from London Welsh. The newspaper reports Henson has agreed to move to the Dragons this summer, a move which would reunite him with Lyn Jones, who he worked with at London Welsh and the Ospreys.
In January, Henson dropped the biggest hint about his future in an interview with Wales Online.
"Bath signed me as cover and I was hoping I would push my way into the first team but it's been playing that well I haven't had too many chances. When I joined them I didn't have a lot of options elsewhere but, irrespective of my future at Bath, I want to keep on playing rugby. I do feel I have a few more years of good rugby in me and I don't want to stop at the end of the season. If it's not at Bath, hopefully somebody else will want me.
"Things seem to be on the up at the Dragons with Lyn in charge. Perhaps they'd be interested in me. Seriously, I'd consider anything ... I've always enjoyed working with Lyn."
