Bryan Habana heading to Toulon

7:29 am on 15 December 2012

The Springbok winger Bryan Habana appears to be the next high profile signing for French rugby club Toulon.

Reports in the French newspaper L'Equipe say Habana will join the Top 14 side next season.

Toulon already boast superstars such as Jonny Wilkinson and Matt Giteau.

Any deal can't be confirmed until April but the Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal is confident he has finally captured the 29-year-old, after failing to attract him twice before.

Habana, who missed South Africa's end-of-season tour of Europe through injury, is currently contacted to the Stormers in Super Rugby.
