Cardiff Blues owner Peter Thomas has revealed that he is optimistic over the chances of Leigh Halfpenny staying at the club.

The Welsh international full-back has recently been linked with a big-money switch to the French Top 14 league.

When informed how much Halfpenny could earn abroad, Thomas told The Rugby Paper: "If that's what Leigh's worth, well done to him, but I am optimistic that between us, the player, the Blues and the Welsh Rugby Union, we will find a solution."

Halfpenny, who signed his first professional contract with the Blues in 2008, was part of the successful British and Irish Lions squad on their summer tour of Australia.
