Nonu ready for more success with Toulon

France fly-half Francois Trinh-Duc has agreed to join Toulon at the end of the season, the club's president Mourad Boudjellal has confirmed.

Trinh-Duc has signed a three-year deal with the European champions, who beat off competition from Toulouse for the Montpellier playmaker.

The 29-year-old announced on Wednesday that he would be leaving the Altrad Stadium, with Boudjellal announcing the deal on French television 24 hours later.

Toulon are well stocked at No.10 with Quade Cooper arriving after the Rugby World Cup to join Frederic Michalak and Tom Taylor, who is on loan from Bayonne.

Matt Giteau also provides fly-half cover, with Toulon's move for Trinh-Duc most likely signalling the end of Michalak's time at the club.

Boudjellal also confirmed that French international hooker Guilhem Guirado has signed a three-year contract extension.
