Castrogiovanni eyes Toulon move
Leicester Tigers prop Martin Castrogiovanni is close to agreeing terms with Toulon according to reports in France.
A deal is nearly complete according to the La Provence newspaper, with Castrogiovanni potentially joining John Smit and Bryan Habana at the club next season.
The Italy international joined the Tigers in 2006 and has frequently been linked with a move across the channel, but with his contract now set to expire at the end of the season Toulon have made their move.
With 76 caps to his name, Castrogiovanni will join Toulon's impressive front-row roster, competing with former All Black Carl Hayman for a starting spot at tighthead.
