Racing Metro 92 have reportedly entered the race to sign Double European Cup Winner (2013 & 2014) Toulon half-back Matt Giteau.

Metro’s fly-half Johnny Sexton has agreed to return to Leinster ahead of the 2015-16 campaign and they are keen to bring in Toulon star Giteau to fill the void, according to Midi Olympique. The newspaper reports Metro have put an offer of €1m a season on the table for the playmaker.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Toulon would be keen to keep Giteau at the club as he has proved to be integral to their recent success. The newspaper adds Toulon chief Mourad Boudjellal and coach Bernard Laporte will sit down with Giteau in the next few weeks in an attempt to thrash out a new deal.
