Two more years: Delon Armitage

Former England and London Irish full-back Delon Armitage has extended his contract with Toulon for two more seasons until 2016.

Armitage's future was in doubt in recent weeks with his current deal set to expire at the end of this season, with Wales and Lions full-back Leigh Halfpenny linked with the club as a replacement.

However with negotiations now concluded Armitage, who has 26 caps, will remain in Toulon for two more seasons.

Armitage made a telling contribution in the Heineken Cup Final by scoring the game's only try as Toulon became European champions for the first time.

"I'm glad I've signed on at a club where I feel good and with who I hope to win more titles," said Armitage.

Armitage's brother Steffon recently extended his contract for three years.
