Leicester have agreed to sign France centre Maxime Mermoz from Toulon until the end of the season, subject to French Rugby Federation approval.

Mermoz, who had previously been linked with a move to Bath, has made 11 appearances in the Top 14 this season.

The 30-year-old has scored three tries in 35 international appearances.

He will help Tigers cover for the loss of England centre Manu Tuilagi, who suffered a season-ending cruciate ligament injury earlier in January.
