Cape Town - Tighthead prop Jacobie Adriaanse is the latest South African set to join Jake White at French club Montpellier.
Adriaanse, 29, will be available for Montpellier from June after ending his stint with Welsh club, Llanelli Scarlets.
Adriaanse has represented the Scarlets 51 times since joining them in November 2012.
His contract with Montpellier is only until after the Rugby World Cup (October 31).
Adriaanse told Netwerk24 that he could consider staying longer should things fall in place.
Adriaanse, who is the older brother of Sharks prop Lourens, previously represented teams like Maties, Western Province, Boland, Griquas and the Lions.
His move to France also ends the opportunity to represent Wales as he would have needed to stay in that country for three years.
Adriaanse will join a whole host of South Africans at Montpellier.
Shaun Sowerby is White's assistant coach, while Pat Cilliers (prop), Wynand Olivier and Robert Ebersohn (both centres) already ply their trade there.
Other players soon to join include Schalk van der Merwe (Lions, prop), Demetri Catrakilis (Stormers, flyhalf), Jacques du Plessis (Bulls, loose forward/lock), Cameron Wright (Sharks, scrumhalf/flyhalf) and Wiaan Liebenberg (Bulls, loose forward).
