Huw Jones is set to sign a new Glasgow Warriors contract, after rejecting more lucrative offers from the English Premiership.
The Scotland centre knocked back Glasgow’s initial offer, understood to be around £230,000 per year, and had all-but agreed a move to Leicester Tigers last month.
However, Jones had a late change of heart after a meeting with Glasgow’s coaching staff and now believes staying at Scotstoun is the best option for his career.
He has not yet put pen to paper on a new and improved two-year Warriors deal, but that is expected to be finalised this week.
“It will be a great fillip for the club with Stuart Hogg moving on,” O’Halloran said.
“It’s great that potentially we’re going to look after Huw and keep him around.
“We’re very confident he’s going to be back on board.”
He will join fellow midfielder Sam Johnson in re-signing at Scotstoun, with the club announcing a new contract extension every day this week.
