Cape Town - Montpellier coach Jake White has his sights set on luring young Blue Bulls loose forward Wiaan Liebenberg to France, Netwerk24 reports.

The 22-year-old former Baby Bok captain is currently not in the Bulls' Super Rugby plans - which makes a move to France very likely.

Loose forwards like Lappies Labuschagne, Pierre Spies, Arno Botha, Deon Stegmann and his brother Hanro are ahead of Liebenberg in the pecking order at the Bulls.

White recently also secured the services of Bulls forward Jacques du Plessis and Stormers flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis.

Other South Africans at Montpellier are Shaun Sowerby (assistant coach), Wynand Olivier (centre), Robert Ebersohn (centre) and Pat Cilliers (prop).
