Johannesburg - Springbok coach Peter de Villiers says he will speak to the Lions about acquiring the services of fullback Frans Steyn from French club Racing Metro before the end of the Super Rugby season.

"We will definitely look at a guy like Frans Steyn and try to speak to the Lions to bring him back for the latter part of the Super Rugby season to speed up his game," De Villiers said on Wednesday.

Steyn, who formed part of the Springbok squad that won the 2007 World Cup in France, joined Racing Metro from the Sharks on a two-year contract in April 2009.

De Villiers said the door remained open for overseas-based players to form a part of the World Cup squad, and he was also in the process of making final a decision on his management team for the global showpiece in New Zealand in September.

"If there are players that are good enough to play in positions where we struggle, we will have a look at them," he said.

"Then we're not looking at rugby only, as there are added values certain players can bring to the side."
