Picamoles joins Top 14 champs Toulouse

French champions Toulouse are set to sign international back row player Louis Picamoles from Montpellier, club officials said on Friday.

The 22-year-old, who can play at flanker or No.8, had a breakthrough season last year when he played in the Six Nations, making his debut against Ireland, and he now has a total of eight international caps.

“Everything is set and all we need now is his signature,” said the Toulouse player recruitment officer Jean-Michel Rancoule.

Toulouse, who must win at Bath on Sunday to make sure they qualify for the quarter-finals of the European Cup, have also signed Bourgoin centre Yann David as backup to Yannick Jauzion.
