Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal has told scrumhalf Rhys Webb that he is free to leave the French club and go back to Wales.
Following his unprecedented attack on Julian Savea, Boudjellal has now turned on Webb, who only joined Toulon at the start of the season.
‘His agents are offering him to everyone in Wales, yet he’s got a contract with us for another year. A year can be long for the club, but especially for this player, so for me, he is released,’ Boudjellal said.
‘Don’t worry, I won’t hold him back. I’m not going to keep him.’
The outspoken Boudjellal added that he was pulling the plug on the star-studded Toulon squad travelling to away matches by air, following their shock 19-10 defeat against minnows Agen on Saturday.
‘I can guarantee the players will sweat. We will do all the journeys by bus and those who are not pleased, they will not come.
‘How can we accept Agen have more hunger than us? This Toulon team has done a lot of bad to the club. And if the players put in as much effort on the pitch as they do in negotiating their contracts, we would be champions of Europe.’
