Munster and Ireland utility back Simon Zebo admits he hopes to play in France at some point in his career.
The 27-year-old, three tries shy of becoming Munster’s new leading European Cup try-scorer, will be free from his current contract when the season ends and had been linked with a move to France.
Bordeaux, Toulon and Pau have reportedly made contact with the Ireland internationals people about a potential move.
Zebo has rejected Top 14 clubs in the past but is expected to decide his future before Ireland’s Autumn Internationals.
“I’m still deciding what I’m going to do in terms of my family and my future and it will probably take a little bit of time,” Zebo told reporters.
“At some time in my career (I’d like to play in France), it just depends when. It could be at any level or anytime, but at some stage, yeah.
“Munster is the creme de la creme when it comes to club rugby and I’m very happy to be spending my time here at the moment.
“If something changes or if I have a different motive for moving I’ll see, but for now I’m just committed to playing as best I can on the pitch.”
