Toulon have signed England international Ben Te’o on a short-term deal.

The 32-year-old centre has signed for the French club until November as cover while the 2019 World Cup is on.

Te’o, who left Worcester at the end of last season, has not made Eddie Jones’ squad for the tournament in Japan and has opted to play for the Top 14 club.

His World Cup omission came two weeks after being involved in a scuffle with team-mate Mike Brown during a social event at the squad’s training camp in Treviso.

Te’o will travel to France on Thursday and will have a medical 24 hours later.

The New-Zealand born centre, who was part of the 2017 British & Irish Lions tour to his homeland, spent three years with Worcester.

He made his England debut in 2016 and has won 20 caps, but did not get a seat on the plane to the Far East.
