Cape Town - Springbok and Stormers wing Bryan Habana has promised to clarify his playing future today.

Habana is widely reported to have signed a contract with French Top 14 big-spenders Toulon.

Habana took to Twitter on Thursday evening, and wrote: So there seems to be quite a bit of news going around today about my future... I'll hopefully be able to clarify everything tomorrow..

Toulon already have South African loose forward Joe van Niekerk and lock Bakkies Botha on their books, while former Springbok utility forward Danie Rossouw will also arrive from Suntory Sungoliath in Japan after their 2012/13 season concludes.

Former Springbok skipper John Smit is also reported to have signed with the current Top 14 log leaders.

At this stage it's unsure exactly how long Habana, 29, will play in France, nor whether he will be available for the Springboks' Incoming Tests against Italy and Scotland in June.

The 2013 Super Rugby season kicks off on Friday, February 15, with the Stormers due to play their first match on Friday, February 22 against Habana's former team, the Bulls, at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee will be hosting a media conference at the HPC in Bellville on Friday at 12:30, at which the Stormers' initial Super Rugby pre-season Super Rugby squad is expected to be named.
