Fullback Andries Coetzee has reportedly agreed to join French club Toulon on a three-year deal later this year.
Coetzee has fallen out of the Springbok mix since Rassie Erasmus’ appointment as coach and according to respected French newspaper Midi Olympique, he has opted to further his career at Toulon despite interest from the Sale Sharks too.
The Lions are facing an exodus at the end of the current campaign, after it was confirmed that flank Jaco Kriel, lock Franco Mostert and prop Ruan Dreyer have signed for Gloucester.
Further reports suggest Elton Jantjies and Rohan Janse van Rensburg are also heading for the exit doors at Ellis Park.
