Lyon has announced the signing of former France international Lionel Beauxis for the 2017/18 season.

Beauxis (31), who currently plays for Bordeaux-Begles, has signed a two-year deal. He has previously played for Stade Francais and Toulouse.

Beauxis made his international debut for France against Italy during the 2007 Six Nations. Following his debut Beaxis was selected for France's squad for the 2007 Rugby World Cup.

Beauxis missed the entire international season in 2008 due to a nagging back injury, ruling him out of the Six Nations and November internationals, but he made a successful comeback in 2009.

 The fly-half has played 20 Tests for France.
