Worcester Warriors have already confirmed that England centre Ben Te'o will leave the club at the end of the season, sparking rumours of where the next destination will be for the former Leinsterman.
The Top 14 has been mentioned as one of the desinations with a number of clubs able to pay the high wage he will demand while his physique and style of play would suit a number of French clubs.
However, fresh reports from Japan suggest that the former Samoan Rugby League International could be heading back to the Southern Hemisphere where he could turn out for the Sunwolves in their final year in Super Rugby.

It was recently announced he would leave Worcester at end of @premrugby season.

A move to Japan could be favourable, finanicially, for Te'o as he would sign for a corparation side eg. Toyota Verblitz while also featuring for the Sunwolves in Super Rugby.
Reports have also suggested that Racing 92, Toulon and Toulouse are all interested in signing the 31-year-old, with any move away from the Premiership effectively ending his test career with England.
Racing 92 are in search of test level centre after they missed out on Manu Tuilagi while Mathieu Bastareaud has been granted the opportunity to take up a loan move after the World Cup and has been linked to Super Rugby club and Major League Rugby sides.
