Toulouse's recruitment chief Jean-Michel Rancoule confirmed the signing - which had been expected - saying it was "good news" for the four-time former European champions.

Flood, capped 60 times for England, will be competing with former All Black Luke McAlister for the number 10 shirt next season, but not France international Lionel Beauxis who is leaving for Bordeaux-Begles next season.

Flood, who began his career with Newcastle, signs for Toulouse after five years with Leicester.

The move almost certainly marks the end of Flood's England career, with the World Cup just a year away.

England coach Stuart Lancaster is holding firm to a policy of not selecting overseas-based players.
