Wilkinson may join Toulon

4:39 pm on 15 March 2009

The England rugby first-five eighth Jonny Wilkinson might be set for a move to France next season.

The former World Cup winner has met with Toulon's chairman Mourad Boudjellal, who is quoted as saying they welcomed him, he was happy and now he's gone.

But Boudjellal says the most important thing at the moment is for Toulon to stay in the top flight.

The club is currently 11th in the French Top 14.

The two bottom teams are relegated.

Toulon have already signed Argentina flyhalf Felipe Contepomi for next season, when they will be coached by former France international Philippe Saint-Andre.
