London Irish's James O'Connor is set to join 2013 Heineken Cup champions Toulon next season according to l'Equipe.

The French newspaper suggests the move is a certainty; however, no details have emerged on the length of the contract.

O'Connor was seen with Toulon owneer Mourad Boudjellal and director of recruitment Laurent Emmanuelli, just hours after his debut for London Irish, which initially sparked rumours he could be preparing for a move to the south of France.

O'Connor's contract with London Irish runs until the end of the current season.
