According to reports in France, Daniel Brennan has signed a three-year deal which will see him leave Toulouse to join a Top 14 rivals Montpellier.
A 6' 4" tighthead prop weighing in at 130kg, he is the son of former Ireland international forward Trevor Brennan.
The 19-year-old will be part of France's U20 squad when they take on Ireland in the Six Nations in Bordeaux on Friday night. He has also played for France at U16, U17 and U18 levels.
In June 2016, he signed a two-year development contract with Toulouse. Though, he did not make a senior appearance for the club.

Daniel's father was a legend at Toulouse, winning two European Cups in five years playing for the club. In rugby retirement, Trevor Brennan has run a bar in the city and also a rugby tours company.
It's said that his failure to breakthrough into the first team led to Daniel Brennan evaluating his future at the club. Montpellier head coach Vern Cotter reportedly played a major part in convincing Brennan that he should make the move east. Clermont, Castres and Munster are also said to have been interesting in acquiring his services.
Brennan has always been an individual of substantial stature. In 2012, his father tweeted a picture of Daniel lifting him on his shoulders - that's the 6' 5", 17st Trevor Brennan.

In 2005, Trevor Brennan also told of his young son's exploits in the world of judo.
The next day Daniel had his first judo championships in the village next to us, St Alban. Myself, Paula and Josh went along to it and it was great to see all the different teams of kids and how professionally it was run. Danny is only six-and-a-half but because of his size he was put in with nine and ten-year-olds. He's tall for his age, and weighs 55kgs. A future Irish prop. "I'm the second Califano," he says.
He had to compete with one eye closed because he had been fighting with the brother a few days before and still had washing up liquid in his eye. But he won a gold and a bronze. Not bad for his first competition.
