Cardiff Blues and Ospreys are interested in signing Leigh Halfpenny if his Toulon contract is terminated.

Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal says Halfpenny’s ongoing injuries could lead to his departure without playing a game since arriving for 2014-15.

Blues director and Wales legend Gareth Edwards said: “We’d welcome him with open arms.”

Ospreys coach Steve Tandy said: “We’d always be interested in the quality of Halfpenny, but it’s paper talk.”

The Wales and British and Irish Lions full-back has not played a game since transferring to the French club from the Blues in the summer.

Halfpenny had shoulder surgery in March after an injury sustained in Wales’ 28-19 Six Nations defeat by England at Twickenham.

The Blues tried to keep Halfpenny at Cardiff Arms Park before his move to France, and chief executive Richard Holland said: “Of course, we would be interested if he became available, be that on a dual contract or a regional deal.
