Ospreys 'in swoop for Marshall'Â
Marshall asked for a transfer when the Tykes' drop was confirmedÂ
Justin Marshall is to join the Ospreys following Leeds' relegation from the Premiership, according to reports.
The former All Blacks scrum-half, 32, will sign for the Swansea-based outfit after rejecting an offer from Wasps, said the Daily Mail.
The paper claimed Wasps were prepared to pay Marshall around a third of the Â£160,000 a year he received at Leeds.
Wasps chief executive David Davies said of their failed swoop: "We did our best but it wasn't to be."
Marshall had a year to run on his two-year deal at Leeds but asked to be released after their relegation was confirmed earlier this month.
The Kiwi, who won 81 international caps, joined the Tykes at the start of last season.
He has also been linked with moves to French club Bourgoin and newly promoted Harlequins. [/b]
