Toomua’s contract was due to end after the climax of Leicester’s Gallagher Premiership campaign on Saturday, but he has already returned Down Under with permission from the Tigers.
The versatile 29-year-old playmaker was signed in 2016 but joined at a difficult time in Leicester’s history, culminating in this season’s struggle against relegation.
He escaped a red card for making a tip-tackle on his debut against Glasgow, but he missed most of the campaign anyway because of a knee injury.
Leicester fans voted him player of the year for 2018-19 due to his vision and range of passing and he made a total for 41 appearances for Tigers.
