Wanted man.

French giants Toulon have become the latest club to be linked with a move for British & Irish Lions scrumhalf Rhys Webb.

The Ospreys and Wales scrumhalf has reportedly told his agent to put him on the market with his national contract set to expire at the end of the season. European champions Saracens are also said to be interested in a move for the talented scrumhalf.

Reports in France say that Webb wishes to join Toulon, but that the three-time European champions are also looking at Bordeaux-Begles scrumhalf Yann Lesgourgues.

Wales and Ospreys will be desperate to hold onto Webb after already losing his halfback partner Dan Biggar to Northampton next season, but it seems Webb is set on a move away from the Guinness PRO14.
