Jan Serfontein is set to further his career overseas after turning down a deal with the Bulls and SA Rugby.
According to SuperSport.com, the Bok centre was offered a 'tripartite deal' where SA Rugby and the Bulls would each pay a part of his salary to try and keep him in South Africa.
Serfontein turned them down and asked for permission to negotiate an offer abroad.
The 24-year-old has been linked with offers from Toulon, Montpellier and Northampton.
When the news broke on Wednesday, SA Rugby took to Twitter to make this statement:
