We may have seen the last of Chris Ashton in an England or Saracens jersey.
The banner winger is set to call time on his England career after a meeting with Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal about a move to France.
Sportsmail understands the pair met in London last week, with the disillusioned 29-year-old considering a move abroad after being stung by a series of lengthy suspensions.
Ashton has a long-term contract with Saracens but his party believe an early release could be negotiated because the club sympathise with his ‘unfair’ treatment.
Apparently Lions and Wales winger has requested a move at the end of the season which could see funds freed up for an Ashton move to France as a replacement for the fullback.
Has Ashton been treated unfairly?
