Dan Carter has confirmed he is returning to Racing 92.

The former All Black out-half is joining Simon Zebo and Donnacha Ryan at the Parisian club mid-season as a 'medical joker'.

The 36-year-old is an injury replacement for Pat Lambie who has been forced to retire due to concussion.

He wrote on Instagram: "Excited to be joining my Ciel et Blanc brothers for the remainder of the Top 14 Season in France. I’m coming back mid season as a Medical Joker.

"It was very sad to hear about @patlambie_’s decision to retire as he has done so much for international rugby.

"Thank you to my family for their continued support, and thank you to @racing92 for the opportunity.

"I’m looking forward to getting back on the pitch!"
