Dusautoir extends Toulouse contract

Date published: January 9 2015

France captain Thierry Dusautoir has extended his contract with Toulouse, signing a new two-year deal at the club.

The 33-year-old flanker had been heavily linked with a move away from the French giants, with Leicester Tigers having claimed to be in contact as recently as yesterday over a potential signing.

Other sides in France were apparently keen on his signature, but Dusautoir has decided to stick with Toulouse, who he joined back in 2007 from Biarritz, and will remain at the club until June 2017.

He will be joined by close friend Patricio Albacete, who will also remain at the club for a further two seasons after signing a contract extension of his own.

The former Argentina second row joined Toulouse from Pau in 2006.
