Toulon’s recruitment for next season has gathered pace, with reports in France saying that Ma’a Nonu and Samu Manoa’s moves are complete.

Midi Olympique reported on Monday that both transfers for the All Blacks and USA stars have been finalised.

Nonu has been heavily linked with a move to the club over the last few weeks, while Manoa, one of the breakout stars in the Premiership with Northampton Saints, would add some youth to an elderly back row unit.

The All Black has allegedly signed a two-year with Toulon, after a financial agreement was reached between his representatives and the club in the last few days.

Boudjellal spoke earlier this year about signing a ‘Fantastic Four’ of rugby, with Nonu certainly appearing to fit the mould.

As for Manoa, arguably the Premiership’s best forward, Northampton are facing up to the price of their success with a number of their top players being linked with the Top 14.

Dylan Hartley, the team’s captain, has been linked with Montpellier while Samoa centre George Pisi has been linked with Castres.
