England’s Andrew Sheridan has entered talks with Toulon.

The Telegraph reports that Sheridan met with Toulon manager Bernard Laporte in Paris on Tuesday this week and then visited the club on Wednesday.

A move to Toulon in France could end Sheridan’s international career, as the RFU have a policy of only calling up foreign based players for England duty under “exceptional circumstances”.

The prop was recently left out of the Six Nations duty as he is still recovering from the shoulder injury he received at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

A number of other players have been linked to Toulon for next season including Melbourne Rebels number 8 Gareth Delve, England full-back Delon Armitage and London Irish lock Nick Kennedy, while Former England players Jonny Wilkinson, Simon Shaw, Steffon Armitage and Dean Schofield are already at Toulon as well as former Saracens lock Kris Chesney.
