Clerc denies signing for Toulon

Date published: May 23 2016

Vincent Clerc has denied that he has signed a contract to join Toulon for the 2016/2017 season, despite Mourad Boudjellal suggesting so on Sunday.

The Toulon owner tweeted 'Welcome Mister Clerc' over the weekend with the veteran France winger assumed to have reached an agreement with the club, after Boudjellal also posted a photo of the pair together last Wednesday.

However that now appears to be in doubt, with Clerc telling Rugbyrama as he left Toulouse's training centre on Monday that he had not signed for their Top 14 rivals.

Clerc, 35, will leave Toulouse at the end of the season after not being offered a new contract following 14 years at the Stade Ernest Wallon.
