Australia back Matt Giteau has left the door open for a return home for the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour after confirming his decision to move to France.
The 91-Test veteran has agreed an 18-month deal at big spending Toulon, with Giteau set to complete the move from the Brumbies after the World Cup.
Giteau will join an all-star line-up, with the likes of Jonny Wilkinson, Carl Hayman and Felipe Contepomi among the internationals in the Toulon squad.
However the length of Giteau's deal with the Top 14 outfit means the 28-year-old could be available for the Lions tour.
Speaking about the deal on Twitter, Giteau said: "Signed with Toulon for 18 month deal after world cup! Love the brumbies and wanna make this yr as enjoyable as I can. Exciting times!!"
