Racing Metro want to tie Johnny Sexton down to a new contract in France and are keen to extend his deal beyond 2015, the Irish fly-half revealed.

The former Leinster man, who still has a one-year option with Racing, told the Irish Independent: “They (Racing) are keen to get talking now and I've said, 'let's wait until the end of the season'."

"It's a family decision now, we've a baby on the way, me and Laura, and it's very much a case of 'let's see how that goes' – having a kid here and not having grandparents, aunties and uncles to look after it.

"We'll just have to see how that goes for the next few months, all being well, touch wood, we'll see what the options are then.

"You don't make decisions based on one game or two games. From a professional point of view there is still a long way to go, there are still some frustrations and days where it's great and you love it – the lifestyle and stuff.

"There are still things you miss from home. I was home last week and you quickly dip back into that routine, remembering the good old days.

"There's a lot of rugby to be played, there's the Argentina tour, so I'll wait until that's over before thinking about it.

"It's tough not to think about it, though, you do spend a lot of your time thinking about whether you want to go home or stay, but I'll just have to bide my time and see what the options are."
