Former Wallabies winger Digby Ioane could be seen in Crusaders colours next year.

The Australian newspaper is reporting Ioane has been lured to the Crusaders by incoming coach Scott Robertson.

The Crusaders need outside backs, with Nemani Nadolo and Johnny McNicholl both heading overseas.

Ioane, 31, played the last of his 35 tests for Australia in 2013 and has since played in France and Japan.
