Paris - French international flyhalf Francois Trinh-Duc signed a three-year deal with European champions Toulon on Thursday, a move which is likely to mark the end of Frederic Michalak's career with the Top 14 giants.

Trinh-Duc, 29 and with 50 caps to his name, had already announced on Wednesday that he would be leaving Montpellier after 10 years.

Twenty-four hours later, Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal was telling French TV that he had sealed a deal for Trinh-Duc.

Michalak is out of contract at the end of the season but they still have plenty of options at flyhalf with Australian star Quade Cooper signed for this season.

New Zealander Tom Taylor is on loan from Bayonne, while veteran Australian centre Matt Giteau can also play at No 10.
