Toulon - South African loose forward Danie Rossouw has signed for French Top 14 club Toulon, club president Mourad Boudjellal said on Monday.

Rossouw agreed a deal until June 2014 and will join his new club next February after the end of the Japanese championships where he is currently playing with Suntory Sungoliath.

The 34-year-old former Bulls stalwart joins compatriots Bakkies Botha and Joe van Niekerk in the southwestern French side who are currently leading the Top 14.

Rossouw's last Test for the Springboks was their 11-9 World Cup quarter-final defeat to Australia in Wellington, New Zealand last year.
