Toulon wing Bryan Habana has confirmed he’s currently in talks with his club over the possibility of extending his time at Stade Mayol.

South Africa international Habana, 33, revealed he is hopeful of a new contract being signed with the European heavyweights by February.

“I’m in talks with [club president] Mourad Boudjellal and the club and it is not decided yet but I hope it will be done between now and the end of January, beginning of February,” the Springbok finisher told AFP.

“I have loved the last three and a half years. I love the club, the town is very beautiful and I have made a lot of friends. We have won a lot of titles as well,”

Habana joined Toulon in 2013 from the Stormers in South Africa and has won two European Cups and a Top 14 title at the club to date.
