Sailosi Tagicakibau's time at London Irish looks to be limited with the winger's future reportedly uncertain at the Aviva Premiership club.
Tagicakibau has been with the Exiles for nine years, but has found it hard to break into the matchday squad of late; he was loaned out to Super Rugby side Stormers towards the end of last season.
The Samoa international winger has been hampered by injuries in recent years but still has one year remaining on his current contract with the Exiles.
However, having returned from his loan spell earlier this summer, Tagicakibau has not featured for his parent club in any of their pre-season friendlies.
Topsy Ojo, Alex Lewington and Andrew Fenby appear to be higher in the Exiles pecking order, while new recruit James Short also impressed in their stunning pre-season victory against Top 14 giants Montpellier.
Tagicakibau has proved a force during his time with the Exiles, having scored 58 tries in 158 matches for them.
