Ian Madigan has asked to be released from his contract with French side Bordeaux Bègles early, according to reports.
The 27-year-old outhalf has a year left on his contract with the Top 14 side, but Midi Olympique claim he is angling for a move to the English Premiership.
According to the report Bordeaux will not stand in Madigan’s way if he wishes to leave and they have lined Toulouses’s Toby Flood as his replacement.
Madigan’s time in France has been largely frustrating, and he hasn’t started a Top 14 game in 2017.
