Toulouse - New Zealand fly-half Luke McAlister has extended his contract with French Top 14 side Toulouse by two years plus the option of a further year, the club have revealed on Thursday.

McAlister, who arrived in south-western France in 2011, is now tied to Toulouse until at least 2016.

The 30-year-old returned to training on Monday after three and a half months on the sidelines due to injury, but his coach Guy Noves has indicated that he is not likely to be ready to play for another three or four weeks.

Capped 30 times by the All Blacks, McAlister has scored 72 points from six starts this season.

He has twice won the Top 14 in his time with Toulouse, in 2011 and 2012.
