Jaminet, who helped Perpignan to a Pro D2 title last season during which he was also named the the league’s Player of the Season has been capped 11 times at the international level for the Les Bleus.

“I am very happy to sign at Stade Toulousain: it is a club whose playing philosophy suits me and which has ambitions for titles,” he said.

“This is what I am looking for for the rest of my career.”

Toulouse President Didier Lacroix is delighted with the inclusion of Jaminet in the squad for the next season.

“Melvyn’s arrival at the club is part of our desire to remain competitive for the coming seasons.

"We had spotted his talent for a few years and we are delighted to finally be able to integrate him into our squad. ”
