Cape Town -  Springbok utility back Frans Steyn will make a decision within the next week about whether or not he'll be returning to South Africa.

He confirmed via Twitter that he received a good offer from the Sharks, but his current French club - Racing Metro - also made an attempt to retain his services.

"I don't know what I am going to do yet return or stay at racing but the sharks and racing metro have been talking to me.

"I will give a answer within the next week will let you know!!!" tweeted Steyn.

Sharks CEO Brian van Zyl earlier this week said they expect Steyn to return to Durban after England tour South Africa in June.

"We want to sign a contract of at least three years with him," said Van Zyl.

      @Tommy, I do not deny or dispute the money or monetary gains to be made and rightly so. The question what value (how much) does his abilities carry? There are limitations to an individual’s worth. Blou Bul Groete!

      I know it's a professional era, but I do miss the old days of loyalty and the pride that went into wearing your jersey. Has professionalism really made the game better (I know the players have greater expectations placed on them) or have we just created a world of prima donnas? Somehow I see the old legends as more worthy of honour - men who put their bodies on the line, while still holding up their 9-5 jobs...
