Huw Jones has scored 10 tries in 18 Tests for Scotland

The future of Scotland centre Huw Jones could become clearer “in the next couple of weeks”, says Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie.

Reports suggest Jones, 24, has held talks with English Premiership side Leicester Tigers, with his Warriors contract up at the end of the season.

“I think you probably need to talk to Huw about that,” said Rennie when asked whether Jones had intimated a desire to leave, or held talks about a new deal.

“Ultimately it’s a big year next year.”

Edinburgh-born Jones, who started his professional career in South Africa with Western Province and the Stormers, joined Glasgow a year ago after scoring seven tries in his first 11 Tests for Scotland.

“It’s a World Cup year and there’s a lot of clubs in England and France with a fair bit of coin and it’s tempting,” Rennie added.

“We’ve got to understand we can’t keep everyone, and if guys go, they go with our blessing.

“What ends up happening with Huw, I guess we’ll know in the next couple of weeks.”
