Cape Town - Bulls and Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn has been linked with a move to French Top 14 club Stade Francais.

French website, Le Rugby Nistere, has reported that Steyn met with Stade Francais' management during the week leading up to the Boks' Test against England at Twickenham.

According to reports, the French club has had Steyn in their sights for some time.

Steyn has fallen out of favour with Bok coach Heyneke Meyer following a series of indifferent performances.

Steyn started the Boks' first two European tour matches (against Ireland and Scotland) on the bench, but was dropped from the match-day 23 altogether for the final Test against England.

Stade Francais are currently eighth in the Top 14 standings, a full 18 points behind leaders Toulon.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Would a move to France benefit Morne Steyn? Are his days as the Bok No 10 over or does he still have something to offer? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
