Reports: Ian Madigan asks to leave Bordeaux

Reports this morning suggest that Ian Madigan's time in France could be coming to an end.

The out-half only signed for Bordeaux Bègles last summer but according to the Midi-Olympique, Madigan has asked to be released from his contract at the end of the season.

The report suggests 27-year-old Madigan could be looking for a move to England to play in the Aviva Premiership.

Madigan left Leinster last season in search of regular playing time but has found opportunities hard to come by in the Top 14 due to injury.

The move away from France could be a possibility as English out-half Toby Flood is rumoured to be his replacement.
