LOCK Will Spencer insists he is “extremely happy” at Worcester Warriors as he begins talks with director of rugby Alan Solomons over his future.

The powerful forward’s contract is due to expire at the end of this season and is now free to speak to other interested clubs.

Midlands rivals Leicester Tigers have been heavily linked with a move for Spencer who revealed there were “offers out there” for him to consider.

But the 25-year-old was keen to stress how content he was at Warriors, insisting the Sixways side had helped to “reignite” his career.

And he felt they were heading in the “right direction” despite languishing in 11th position in the Aviva Premiership.

“I have started talks briefly with Alan and we will see what the future holds,” Spencer said.

“I hope to get it sorted within the month, definitely.

“There are offers out there, but I am very happy at Worcester and I’ll speak to Solly and we’ll see.”

Oxford-born Spencer came through the ranks at Bath where he played in 11 first-team games.

Injuries hampered his chances at the Somerset side and a back issue delayed his debut for Warriors following his move in the summer of 2016.

But since establishing himself in Worcester’s starting line-up, Spencer has become a vital cog in the pack, making 27 appearances.

“I love playing for Worcester,” Spencer said.

“The club’s been brilliant for me after coming off the back of a very bad few years with injuries.

“It has reignited my career and I am extremely happy here with the boys and the coaches. I generally believe that this is a club going in the right direction.

“I am happy to be a part of it.”

Spencer also felt he could achieve his international ambitions while playing for Warriors after being involved in the England set-up at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

He came off the bench to feature in the non-cap match against the Barbarians along with teammate Jack Singleton at Twickenham in May last year.

“The dream for anyone is to get international honours,” Spencer added.

“I know we can achieve that here at Worcester.

“We are a good side and we are more than a match for anybody on our day.

“We have got the likes of Jack who went on tour to Argentina, Nick Schonert is in the picture as well and of course Ben Te’o is there, so we have got some quality.

“I also don’t know how Josh Adams hasn’t been involved with Wales yet. He is absolutely incredible.

“Guys here know that there is a possibility if you are playing well week-in week-out to make the step up (to international rugby).”

Spencer had formed a strong relationship with Gary Gold during his time at Bath and then at Warriors.

But he insisted he was also enjoying working with Solomons who replaced USA’s new head coach as Worcester’s boss late last month.

“Alan has been brilliant,” Spencer added.

“He has been around the place for a while now and has got respect from the guys.

“He is a really enthusiastic, positive guy and I think he’s made a big difference so I look forward to working with him going forward.”
