Caucaunibuca: Close to joining Toulouse
Toulouse are closing in on the signing of controversial Fijian winger Rupeni Caucaunibuca as a medical joker.
With Yann David ruled out with a broken leg, Toulouse have been in the market to boost their back division.
The Red and Blacks look to have now agreed a deal to bring in Caucau after fellow Fiji international facilitated the deal.
Caucau was axed by Agen after he failed to return to the club in time for the start of the new campaign.
Agen, though, retained his registration and were believed to be after a fee of €150,000 to release him. However reports have now claimed that they have accepted a figure well below the initial asking price.
Jean-Michel Rancoule, who is in charge of player recruitment at Toulouse, is now hoping for the deal to be completed in the next few days.
