Johann Sadie will join the NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes at the end of the Super Rugby season.
The midfielder, who was not selected for this year's Springbok training squad, will have Heinrich Brüssow and Riaan Viljoen as team-mates at the Japanese club.
SARugbymag.co.za understands that Sadie will still be available for the Cheetahs in next year's Super Rugby tournament.

Brüssow can make statement
Seven South Africans will front the Wallabies in the guise of Barbarians at Twickenham, but it’s the 40 minutes from Heinrich Brüssow that could be the most significant, writes MARK KEOHANE.
What we’ve learned
Five lessons from the Currie Cup final at Newlands, according to SIMON BORCHARDT.
