Cape Town - Currie Cup champions Western Province are reportedly in the process of signing Pumas tighthead prop Vincent Koch.

According to the Cape Times, Koch is set to be evaluated as soon as next Sunday's friendly match against English club Saracens, in London.

Twenty-four-year-old Koch, a member of the 2012 Tuks Varsity Cup winning side, has enjoyed a stellar season with the Pumas in the Currie Cup, where he made a shift from his regular loosehead position.

With Pat Cilliers (Montpellier) and Brok Harris (Newport) heading overseas, the Cape side have acted swiftly to bolster their tighthead stocks.

It is also believed that WP have already added Blue Bulls tighthead and former Baby Bok Wilco Louw to their ranks for next season.
