Leicester target Nick Abendanon signs deal to stay in French rugby

FORMER England full-back Nick Abendanon has rejected the chance of moving back to the Premiership to stay in France next season.

The Rugby Paper has reported a couple of times this summer that former Clermont Auvergne ace Abendanon, 33, was weighing up offers from Leicester Tigers and as well as London Irish.

The Tigers only offered the ex-Bath star a one-year deal whereas ProD2 outfit Vannes offered him a two-year contract.

Abendanon, who won two caps for England in 2007, is 34 next month and likely to finish his playing career in France.
