Toulon star Steffon Armitage has been linked with a return to the Premiership in a race against time before the Rugby World Cup.

Midi Olympique report that the RFU have contacted Toulon about the possibility of quickly bringing Armitage back to England in order for him to be eligible for selection.

Toulon are obviously not keen for Armitage to leave, with Mourad Boudjellal telling the publication on Sunday that a loan would not be possible, although the club also doesn’t want to prevent the 29-year-old from playing in a World Cup.

Competition in the back-row is fierce for Armitage as Toulon are well-stocked with Chris Masoe and Juan Mart
