Wanted: Rory Kockott

Castres scrum-half and talisman Rory Kockott has reportedly signed a three-year deal with European champions Toulon for next season.

The 27-year-old South African is set to leave Castres having guided them to the Top 14 title in 2012-2013, according to L'Equipe.

Kockott has reportedly signed a three-year deal with Toulon, who currently possess a number of options at scrum-half.

Michael Claassens was signed from Bath during the off-season whilst Sebastian Tillous-Borde, Nicolas Durand (on-loan at Perpignan) and Frederic Michalak are also options.

Toulon have also been linked with another South African scrum-half, Ulster's Ruan Pienaar, although that move now appears unlikely considering Toulon will have four specialist scrum-halves and Michalak on their books should Kockott's signing be confirmed.

Kockott was the top points scorer in the Top 14 last season with 376 points. His tally came from eight tries, 33 conversions and 90 penalties.
