Mermoz joins injury-hit Leicester from Toulon
Maxime Mermoz has joined Leicester Tigers until the end of the season as the Premiership side look to cover for their injuries at centre.
A 35-time France international, Mermoz arrives as a Top 14 champion with Toulouse, Perpignan and Toulon, while he also won back-to-back European Cups with the latter in 2013 and 2014.
“We are missing two big players in our midfield and we’re very happy to be able to bring in a player of Maxime’s style, quality and experience there,” head coach Aaron Mauger told Leicester’s official website.
“He has played at the highest level in France, in Europe and internationally, and we look forward to bringing him into the squad here.”
