Toulouse bring in Jordan Dezaria from Leigh

Toulouse have signed promising forward Jordan Dezaria from Leigh for the 2019 campaign.

The 22-year-old came through the system at Catalans Dragons, where he made five first-team appearances.

Dezaria joined Leigh Centurions ahead of the 2018 season a two-year deal but due to the club finding itself in financial difficulties, Dezaria left the Centurions and has returned to France to join Olympique.

On signing for Toulouse, Dezaria said: “It is a satisfaction to move to Toulouse.

“This is a great club, a very competitive team and there is a group of quality players working with each other.”

Toulouse chairman Bernard Sarrazain commented: “Although he has solid experience despite being young, I’m sure Jordan can still progress, and I’m glad he does so with Toulouse.”

Dezaria will link up with his new team-mates when they return for pre-season training.
