Date published: June 29 2015

Toulon have reportedly signed up young Fijian back Filimoni Savou on a two-year deal.

The Fiji Times revealed the move saying that the European champions have high hopes for the youngster, who is just 18.

Savou's father, Josetiki, revealed the news of the move and also the length of the contract to the paper.

The report also notes that Savou has been based in England and was part of the Saracens academy since the age of 13.

However complications with his visa have led to Savou leaving last season's Premiership winners to head to France. Savou recently turned out for the Fiji U20 side in the Junior World Trophy in Portugal.
