South Africa winger Bryan Habana is set to move to French Top 14 side Toulon next season, according to reports.

The 29-year-old will join the club, who already boast superstars such as Jonny Wilkinson and Matt Giteau, next year according to L'Equipe.

The French newspaper claims Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal has agreed a deal to sign the World Cup winner, having failed twice in the past to secure the South African's ruthless finishing skills.

Any deal cannot be confirmed until April but the Toulon president is confident he has finally captured his man, who has won 83 caps and scored 47 tries for the Springboks.

"On a scale of 1 to 10 (on arrival), I would say 10 but it is only my opinion," Boudjellal is quoted as saying.

Habana, who missed South Africa's end-of-season tour of Europe through injury, is currently contacted to the Stormers in Super Rugby.
