Ashton will join Toulon

Winger Chris Ashton will leave Saracens to join French side Toulon for the next season, a move that ends his hopes of a return to the England team.

The Premiership club announced the news, which had been heavily trailed, in a statement on Tuesday, and Ashton confirmed his intentions on his Twitter feed.

“This was easily the hardest decision I have had to make (and I’ve made a few),” he wrote.
