Wasps winger Christian Wade is reportedly set to leave English rugby and attempt to join the NFL.
Here Press Association Sport looks at the chances of the once-capped England international turning an American dream in to sporting reality in the middle of an NFL season.
How can the move happen?
Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Jordan Mailata and Carolina Panthers defensive end Efe Obada this year became the first two members of the pathway programme to make a final 53-man roster. Wade could benefit by following the same path as soon as his position has been defined.
Has a similar switch been done before?
Can Wade transfer his union skills?
