Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal insists that he wants to keep Jonny Wilkinson at the club.

Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal has revealed that he wants former England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson to remain at the club.

The 33-year-old's current deal with the French outfit expires this summer, but Boudjellal has claimed that there is a new offer on the table.

"I'd sign him for four years if he wanted to. He knows that if I extend it, it's not for bad reasons. It's just that he's an excellent player. Only he can say, it's he who decides," he told reporters at a press conference.

It is understood that Wilkinson will announce his future plans in March.
