Transfer News: France centre leaves Newcastle Falcons

France international Maxime Mermoz has left Newcastle Falcons to rejoin Stade Toulouse on a two-year contract.

The 31-year-old centre was limited to just five Premiership appearances for the Falcons, with a balance issue keeping him out for four months of the season.

The ex-Perpignan, Toulon and Leicester player has returned to the club with whom he started his career.

“In a way, returning to Toulouse is a homecoming,” Mermoz said. “It remains a very ambitious club.”
