Louis Rees-Zammit, the former Wales rugby star who left the sport in January to pursue a career in the NFL, is closing in on a dream move to join the Super Bowl-winning Kansas City Chiefs.

According to multiple reports Tuesday night, Rees-Zammit is close to completing his move to the Chiefs after visiting the team last week. On Monday, it was announced that the 23-year-old had signed a deal to be represented by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

Rees-Zammit will be teammates with Travis Kelce, who is dating Taylor Swift, and Patrick Mahomes and will form a new addition to an offense that will challenge an unprecedented “three-shift” next season under Andy Reid.

The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl in Las Vegas in February, following last year’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

When Rees-Zammit resigned in January, he caused disbelief in rugby circles – the announcement came two weeks before his Wales team began their Six Nations campaign against Scotland, where he would have been a key figure.

But in a hardly believable turn of events, it now appears that Rees-Zammit will be lining up at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium starting in September.

The Chiefs were propelled to global fame last season when star Kelce began dating Taylor Swift, and music’s biggest star cheered on the team in person at 13 games, including the Super Bowl.

Unsurprisingly, Rees-Zammit’s rapid speed is understood to have impressed a number of NFL scouts. He posted a 4.43 40-yard dash at the NFL’s International Player Pathway (IPP) pro day, as well as a broad jump of 9 feet, 7 inches and a vertical jump of 29 inches.

Rees-Zammit has spoken before about his ambitions to move to wide receiver, the only problem area for the Chiefs last season.
