Current Springbok centre Francois Venter has signed for Worcester Warriors.
Current Springbok and Cheetah's centre Francois Venter has signed a two-year deal with Worcester Warriors.
Venter started in three out of four of South Africa's Autumn Internationals last year and will make his move to Sixways at the end of the current season.
The 26-year-old has made over 50 Super Rugby appearances and will link up with a threatening looking Warriors backline next season.
Venter said: “It’s a very exciting step for me to make the move to England and play in the Aviva Premiership for Warriors.
“Rory Duncan has been a great coach for us at the Cheetahs and having the opportunity to continue to work alongside him and also Alan Solomons, is something I’m looking forward to.
“But for now I want to focus my attention on Saturday’s match and the rest of our Guinness Pro 14 campaign.
“I’d like to thank the Cheetahs for a great few years and I’ll continue to wear the jersey with pride.”
Warriors Director of Rugby Solomons added: “Francois is a fantastic player and we are thrilled to be bringing him to Sixways.
“He is an experienced international and I have no doubt that he will play a big role at Sixways.”
Venter is the latest in an ambitious period of fresh new signings and vital contract extensions. Solomons is beginning to build an admirable looking squad ahead of the 2018/19 season.
