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.

Fekitoa’s form has seen him drop out of favour with New Zealand selectors, with Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty, Ngani Laumape and Sonny Bill Williams and ahead of him in the centre pecking order.

A deal two year deal with Toulon could be worth over €500,000 per annum, a multiple of his salary in New Zealand. The 6’1, 99kg product of Wesley College, which also produced All Blacks Jonah Lomu and Frank Halai, is also a talented sevens player and was Player of the Tournament at the 2011 National Sevens.
