The All Black and Blues midfield back Luke McAlister has confirmed he has officially signed a three-year deal with French rugby club Toulouse.
The 27-year-old will head to France at the conclusion of his 2011 rugby commitments in New Zealand.
McAlister returned to New Zealand in 2009 after spending two years with the Sale Sharks in Manchester.
McAlister is expected to be a part of the All Blacks World Cup squad.
The Chiefs have announced that utility back Lelia Masaga and young lock Romana Graham have re-signed through to 2013.
