Cape Town - Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn has extended his contract with French Top 14 club Stade Francais by a further two years.

The 31-year-old joined the Paris-based club from the Bulls in 2013 and now looks set to finish his career in France.

Steyn was part of the Springbok squad at the recent Rugby World Cup, but received limited game time, with Handre Pollard and Pat Lambie ahead of him in the flyhalf pecking order.

Steyn, who made his Springbok debut in 2009, has 60 Test caps to his name.

Stade announced the news via their official Twitter account on Wednesday. On Tuesday, they also unveiled Wallaby scrumhalf Will Genia as new recruit.
