Contract close: Delon Armitage

It's been reported that Delon Armitage is set to sign a new deal with Toulon this weekend, despite talk of the club chasing Wales star Leigh Halfpenny.

According to Var Matin, the English full-back is expected to put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension at the Top 14 heavyweights.

The 29-year-old was thought to be wanted by Montpellier and his expected new deal comes following Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal revealing that he is interested in signing British and Irish Lions full-back Leigh Halfpenny.
