Toulon's Top 14 Rugby club owner Mourad Boudjellal appears to have confirmed that Springbok winger Bryan Habana will play for Top 14 Rugby next season.

Toulon have yet to officially announce Habana's signing but when Boudjellal was asked whether Habana would join Toulon he told the new DTT channel, Team 21,"On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say 10 but it is only my opinion."

Boudjellal has tried to unsuccessfully sign Habana twice in the past but now that that Springbok and Stormers winger is getting closer to the end of his career the move makes more sense.

Rugby World Cup, TriNations and Super Rugby winner Habana has playe for the Springboks 83 times and scored 47 tries for South Africa.

Habana is currently contracted to Western Province and the Stormers in South Africa and any move to France can be expected to take place after the Super Rugby season.

Should Habana join Toulon he will team up with his former Springbok and Blue Bulls team mate Bakkies Botha as well as a host of international stars such as Matt Giteau, Jonny Wilkinson and Frederic Michalak.
