The 27-year-old, who left Kingsholm in the summer after spending two seasons there, is expected to join a French Division Two club for four months.

Thomas has posted a message on social media alongside a picture of himself at Cardiff Airport.

The message included a French flag symbol and the hashtag #newchellange.

Thomas joined Dragons from Scarlets in 2007 and moved on to Gloucester in 2012.
