Jonny Wilkinson linked with Toulon move

Latest update : 2009-05-18

England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson could join Leinster's Felipe Contepomi and Cardiff's Jamie Robinson in Toulon, French media report. The injury-prone World Cup hero is expected to sign a two-year contract with the big-spending French club.

AFP - England World Cup hero Jonny Wilkinson could sign a two-year deal with big-spending French side Toulon, it was reported by Radio RMC here on Sunday.
  
Wilkinson, who will be 30 on May 25, has been at Newcastle since 1997 and kicked the crucial drop goal which secured the 2003 World Cup for England.
  
Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal, a long time admirer of the injury-plagued fly-half who has 70 caps and 1,032 points, is due to hold a news conference on Monday.
  
Toulon, who finished in ninth place in the French Top 14 this season after a campaign battling the fear of relegation, will have ex-French international Philippe Saint-Andre in place as sporting directer next season.
  
They were expected to sign Leinster's Argentine fly-half Felipe Contepomi, but he will be out for six months after suffering a serious knee injury in the European Cup semi-finals.
