Webb has re­vealed he is in con­tract talks with the Welsh Rugby Union and the Ospreys about ex­tend­ing his stay at the Lib­erty Sta­dium.

The Bri­tish & Ir­ish Li­ons scrumhalf sees his Na­tional Dual Con­tract ex­pire at the end of the sea­son and he has been linked with a move to Euro­pean cham­pi­ons Sara­cens and French gi­ants Toulon.

But the 28-yearold in­sists his pre­ferred op­tion is to stay in Wales.

“I’m linked with a dif­fer­ent club ev­ery day in the pa­per,” said Webb.

“But I’m work­ing closely with the WRU at the mo­ment, so hope­fully we can get things sorted.”

Ospreys head coach Steve Tandy is also con­fi­dent Webb will stay in Swansea next sea­son.

He said: “The WRU and Rhys are in talks and I'm pretty com­fort­able.”
