Fabien Barcella France traing RWC 2011

Toulon bound: Fabien Barcella

Toulon have signed France international prop Fabien Barcella from Biarritz on a one-year contract, sources close to the player said on Friday.

Barcella has played for the past six seasons at Biarritz after making his name at Auch, where he won the ProD2 title in 2007.

The 30-year-old has been capped 20 times for France, but has seen hi career hampered in recent seasons by a series of injuries.

Barcella becomes the second Biarritz prop recruited by Toulon this season after Alexandre Menini, signed earlier this week a medical joker for former England prop Andrew Sheridan, who has been ruled out until the end of the season with a neck injury.

Toulon lead the Top 14 standings with Biarritz almost certain to be relegated.
