Sexton linked with big-money move to France

LEINSTER outhalf Jonathan Sexton is reportedly in discussions with French club Racing Metro about a summer move.

The Ireland and Lions star has a contract with the IRFU but that is due to end later this year.

Now French newspaper Midi Olympique has claimed that Sexton has already met Racing owner Jacky Lorenzetti.

In a piece headlined 'Sexton attendu' ('Sexton expected'), the paper claims that a deal worth €700,000 a season could be offered to the 27-year-old

It is not the first time a leading Irish player has been linked with such a move in the run-up to talks with the IRFU, with Brian O’Driscoll, Ronan O’Gara and Jamie Heaslip being linked with French clubs in the past.
