Picamoles denies Premiership move

Date published: October 21 2015

Louis Picamoles has cooled speculation over a potential move to the Premiership, insisting that he has made no decision over his future.

Rumours circulated earlier this week that the powerful France number eight could be heading to the Premiership from Toulouse, with Bath and Northampton linked to his signature.

Toulon and Montpellier are also believed to be interested, while Toulouse are desperate to keep hold of their star.

And Picamoles, who is currently taking a week off following France's elimination from the World Cup, explained that he will speak to Toulouse next week before making a decision on his future.

"There are lots of things being said at the moment," he told RMC Sport.

"This week I'm on holiday. I'm just trying to come to terms with the disappointment of the end of the World Cup. I'll go back to my club, Toulouse, next week.

"In terms of my future, I'll meet my current president and Fabien Pelous (sporting director) next week. Between then and now, nothing will happen.

"Anything that has been said about this subject is pure speculation, given that for the minute, I've not made any decisions. I will make my decision soon. But for now, I'm spending time with my family and enjoying my holidays. Before I make any decisions, I'll meet the people in charge at Stade next week, and then I'll make a decision.

"Anything that has been said up to now can't be true, given that for the moment no decision has been taken."
