Marseille - Fiji wing Napolioni Nalaga will be a Toulon player next season despite press rumours to the contrary, club president Mourad Boudjellal said on Friday.

Nalaga is currently playing for Clermont, where the local newspaper, La Montagne, claimed Toulon no longer wanted the 29-year-old, who in December signed a pre-contract to join the European champions on a three-year deal.

"Nalaga has signed for Toulon and will be at Toulon next season," Boudjellal said.

RMC radio station had also claimed that Toulon missed a deadline to have Nalaga's contract ratified but Boudjellal denied there was any such issue.

Toulon and Clermont will play each other at the latter's Marcel-Michelin stadium, just two weeks after Toulon beat their great Top 14 rivals in the European Champions Cup.

It was a record third straight European crown for Toulon, who also beat Clermont in the 2013 final.

The winner of Sunday's match will likely go on to top the regular season table.

Nalaga has been top try-scorer in the Top 14 three times since joining Clermont.
