Eoin Reddan has enjoyed a trophy laden career.

When Leinster unveiled a list of players who had secured contract extensions earlier this season, there were three notable absentees; Isaac Boss, Cian Healy and Eoin Reddan.

Although Healy had been linked with a move to the Worcester Warriors, he ultimately signed a new deal with the province, leaving questions marks hanging over both Boss and Reddan.

After Boss announced his decision to retire at the end of the season, speculation surrounding Reddan’s future intentions intensified, particularly after Leinster signed Jamison Gibson-Park from the Hurricanes.

However, it now appears the 35 year old is about to put an end to such speculation, after Pundit Arena sources revealed to us that Reddan will announce his retirement from rugby union in the coming weeks.

After leaving Munster in the summer of 2005, Reddan joined Wasps where he won a European Cup in 2007 and a Premiership title in 2008.

Although he succeeded Matt Dawson at Wasps, in 2009 Reddan signed for Leinster, where he went on to lift two Pro 12 titles and claim two further Heineken Cups.

Despite spending much of his time behind the likes of Peter Stringer, Tomas O’Leary and Conor Murray at international level, Reddan still manged to accumulate an impressive 70 caps for Ireland.
