The 32-year-old currently plies his trade at French club Montpellier.

Afrikaans newspaper Rapport indicated on Sunday that SA Rugby will help finance Steyn's move to the Cheetahs.

The 32-year-old, his wife Linca, and their three daughters plan to settle permanently in Bloemfontein.

Steyn, who was schooled at Grey College, represented Free State at junior levels before starting his professional career at the Sharks.

He has also represented Racing 92 in France and the Toshiba Brave Lupus in Japan.

A Rugby World Cup winner in 2007 and 2019, Steyn boasts 67 Test caps for the Springboks.
