Ian Madigan is weighing up a reported £350,000-per-year deal from cash-rich English side Bristol.

And if they don't snap up the Ireland out-half then Conor O'Shea's Harlequins will make their move.

Connacht's Robbie Henshaw has ruled out a move abroad, with a move to Leinster in the offing, although Munster maintain some interest.

Should Henshaw arrive at the RDS in time for next season, Madigan could be making way.

Madigan was the only unused replacement as Leinster's European campaign all but ended in Bath last weekend and he remains an understudy at out-half in the light of Jonathan Sexton's repatriation, while he is not a first-choice in the three-quarter line.
