Worcester Warriors are set to complete the signing of Toulon second-row Dean Schofield, according to reports.
The 33-year-old has previously turned out for Sale where he made 162 appearances in the Aviva Premiership before making the switch to Toulon in the summer of 2010. But after two seasons in the Top 14 - and playing alongside the likes of Simon Shaw and Bakkies Botha - Schofield has reportedly agreed to join Richard Hill's Worcester - according to Worcester News.
Schofield - who was capped on England's tour to South Africa in 2007 - will add a physical presence to the Warriors' second-row alongside the impressive James Percival.
And if his signing is confirmed then he will join the likes of Nikki Walker, David Lemi, Paul Hodgson and Jon Clarke in committing to the Sixways side.
