Gigot reveals Catalans exit plan
Catalans Dragons back Tony Gigot has revealed that he will leave the club at the end of the Super League season.
The 28-year-old has made over 100 appearances for the Perpignan-based outfit since joining from SO Avignon in 2015 and the club had offered him a new contract to extend his stay at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.
However, the Dragons have now withdrawn that offer after Gigot failed to respond, with the France international confirming that he now hopes to enjoy a strong end to the season before moving on to pastures new.
"People have suspected this for some time and now the club has announced they have withdrawn the contract," Gigot told L'Independant. "I would have liked to finish this season by qualifying for the play-offs but I just want to try to end on a good note."
Gigot insists he does not have a new club lined up and he hasn't ruled out the possibility of returning to Catalans in some capacity in the future.
"This club has been by my side, but I do not know what the future will be for the next few years, and whether or not one day I will come back," the former London Broncos star added.
