REPORTS: Malakai Fekitoa's future appears to have been confirmed
How long his contract at Toulon is for and when he will arive at the European giants is yet to be made clear.
In June his agents rubbished claims that he would sign for Toulon and while out of favour with All Black selectors, he did get a late call up for the Lions series after Sonny Bill Williams was banned for his red card hit on Anthony Watson.
However, at a recent presentation Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal said he had signed a World Champion All Black centre, leading many to believe that Fekitoa had signed on the dotted line for the French mega-club.

Reading too much into it coz I'm a tad excited?
