    Cape Town - Stormers wing, Gerhard van den Heever has signed for Munster and will join up with his new team-mates after the Currie Cup season.

    SkySports' website
    reports that Van den Heever joins Munster on a two-year contract.

    "Gerhard is a young guy that is capable of playing in multiple positions and he has committed to Munster for two years so he has an opportunity to build in becoming a Munster man just like BJ Botha and CJ Stander before him," said Munster coach Rob Penney.

    "He is a wing, centre and fullback with a lovely kick and is exceptionally fast so he should be a great addition to the squad.

    "We are very happy to have him coming to us and I know they are disappointed to see him go from the Stormers."

    Van den Heever said that he looks forward to his Irish adventure.

    "I am looking forward to joining Munster and I am humbled by the trust shown in my character and ability to be granted the honour of becoming part of the Munster way of life.

    "I will work diligently to justify the faith put in me and I will do my utmost to make a purposeful impact at the club every day.

    "For now I will focus on playing my part to assist Western Province in defending the Currie Cup title."

    Van den Heever moved down to the Cape in 2012 after starting his career at the Bulls in 2009.
