Leinster s Jonny Sexton lifts the Pro12 trophy

Homecoming: Jonathan Sexton

Ireland fly-half Jonathan Sexton has signed a four-year deal with Leinster to return home next season, according to reports.

According to the Irish Independent, Sexton has come to an agreement with the IRFU and will return to Dublin for the start of the 2015/2016 season.

The news will no doubt be welcomed by Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt, who worked extensively with Sexton during his time with Leinster and has stated in the past his preference for Ireland's leading players to be playing at home ahead of the Rugby World Cup.

Sexton's current club, Racing Métro, revealed last week that they had also offered Sexton a four-year deal to stay in Paris.

The 29-year-old joined Racing at the start of last season on a two-year contract with the option of a third beyond 2014/2015.
