Quade Cooper’s much anticipated return to Australian Super Rugby has taken a step closer after he rejected a contract extension from French club Toulon.

Cooper left the Reds last year and has spent the year trying to break in the Australian Olympic Sevens team – without success – and playing for Toulon.

The former Reds and Wallabies playmaker has rejected an offer from Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal to play for the club in 2017.

A report from French sports newspaper L’Equipe says that Cooper rejected the offer but did not mention where the playmaker’s future lies.

Cooper’s contract rejection comes a week after Wallabies coach Michael Cheika admitted that he had been trying to get Cooper home.

The most likely home for Cooper would be the Reds who said that they would be interested in re-signing their former star but there has also been interest from the Rebels in Melbourne.
