TRANSFER TALK: Top French club Toulon have reportedly shown keen interest in signing the Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies.

According to RMC Sport, Toulon have been in contact with Jantjies as a suitable flyhalf for the club.

Toulon have seen Louis Carbonel and Anthony Belleau leave for Montpellier and Clermont respectively, so would like to boost their depth in the No 10 position.

Jantjies spent a short period in the Top 14 with Pau during the 2020-21 season.

The South African newspaper Rapport reported that the 32-year-old will be made a free agent at the end of the year after Japan League One club Urayasu D-Rocks decided to terminate his contract.

The Japanese club’s decision came in the wake of the off-field saga involving Jantjies, which resulted in him being sent home from the Springboks’ camp in Argentina during the Rugby Championship.

According to Rapport, Jantjies allegedly spent a night with Springbok dietician Zeenat Simjee at a guesthouse in the week leading up to the opening 2022 Rugby Championship Test against the All Blacks in Nelspruit in early August.

Both Jantjies and Simjee have subsequently denied the allegations.
