Surprise Premiership Side Lead The Race To Sign All Blacks Star Malakai Fekitoa

All Blacks centre Malaki Fekitoa could be on his way to England.

The Highlanders star is out of contract in the summer with a move to Europe said to be on the cards. A number of English and French clubs have expressed interest in Fekitoa, with the centre admitting he has spoked to a number of them.

Toulon were said to be the frontrunners for his signature for a long time, but a surprise candidate has now emerged as favourites to land him.

Neil Fissler of The Rugby Paper have revealed that Harlequins are leading the race to sign the 24 year-old, with Jamie Roberts perhaps set to make way.

Cardiff Blues are said to be interested in taking Roberts after missing out on Leigh Halfpenny, leaving the door open for Fekitoa to join on a mega deal.
