Volavola earlier snubbed offer from English club Newcastle Falcons in favour of a more fashionable option in former club Racing 92.

The 30-year-old is currently playing for Perpignan the Pro D2 and is keen to stay in France, where he has played since joining Bordeaux in 2017.

Volavola, who plays either No.10 or fullback, spent two years with the Paris glamour boys before moving to Perpignan last year.
