The second division outfit ended the scrum-half's contract in January, just six months into a two-year deal after an alleged bust-up with the club's coach.

The 33-year-old player, capped 71 times and now playing for Narbonne, had been seeking half a million euros from Oyonnax who were demoted from the Top 14 last season.
