PARIS (Reuters) - Former England flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson has extended his contract with Toulon by one year, the French Top 14 club said on Tuesday.

"The English flyhalf has just signed a one-year contract extension," Toulon said in a statement on their website (www.rctoulon.com).

Wilkinson, 33, had made his desire to extend his contract last month after pondering retirement.

Wilkinson, who kicked England's winning drop goal in the 2003 World Cup final, joined Toulon in 2009 from Newcastle.
