Cape Town - Duane Vermeulen’s reported move to France appears all the more likely after the Springbok and Stormers No 8 rejected a contract offer from the South African Rugby Union (SARU).

According to Netwerk24’s sources, Vermeulen would have been the highest earning Springbok had he accepted SARU’s offer.

His decision to reject the offer from SARU adds fire to reports earlier this year that linked him with a move to French club Toulon.

The 28-year-old’s contract with Western Province expires this year, while his SARU contract expires on December 31.

Vermeulen has played 29 Tests for the Springboks since making his debut in 2012.
