France star Melvyn Jaminet is set to leave his Perpignan contract early, after requesting a release from the club.


According to L’Indpendent in France, Jaminet will have to be bought out of or pay to be released from his contract.

Jaminet’s current contract with Perpignan ends in 2024, but it was back in January that the fullback who starred in this year’s Six Nations requested an exit.

His new destination has not been confirmed but Toulouse are firm favorites to pick up the 22-year-old’s signature.

It had been reported at the start of the season that Stade Toulsain was the likely destination, but the claims in the French press were denied by Perpignan President François Rivière at the time.

Now Toulouse – in the form of President Didier Lacroix – have openly admitted that they are interested in signing the fullback, who has earned 11 caps for Fabien Galthie’s France to date.

Perennial Top 14 strugglers Perpignan are just one spot up from the bottom of the league, and Jaminet will be eager to kick on in a career that already looks destined for the stars.


Jaminet was an integral part of France’s 2022 Six Nations campaign and has taken the opportunity afforded to him in the injury absence of Brice Dulin.
