Jonny Sexton Racing Metro Top 14 2014

Plenty to ponder: Jonathan Sexton

Ireland fly-half Jonathan Sexton has been offered a new four-year contract with Top 14 side Racing Métro, according to the club's joint coach Laurent Labit.

"He is thinking it over, we have discussed it with him," said Labit on the 29-year-old Sexton whose current deal ends in June.

"In his hands he has a proposal for a further four years with Racing.

"The deal is simple - either he extends and finishes his career here or he returns to Ireland.

"This is what he has to think about. But we know him, he's OK with it."

"Of course, there are other elements involved. He has a child and he has to go away and discuss it with his wife.

"We hope he stays. Like he says, his son was born here and in 20 years he could be France's fly-half."

Sexton, who has played 48 times for Ireland, arrived at Racing in 2013 from Leinster and signed a two-year contract worth an estimated 700 000 euros (£560 000) a year.
