    Report links Lambie with move to France

    Cape Town - Sharks and Springbok flyhalf Pat Lambie has reportedly signed a deal with French Top 14 outfit Racing 92.

    According to French rugby newspaper Midi Olympique, Lambie has agreed to a three-year deal with the Parisian club.

    Lambie is struggling with ongoing concussion symptoms and unlikely to play rugby again this year.

    Lambie's future in the game was cast in doubt when he was concussed in a May 13 clash against the Southern Kings.

    That followed the sickening blow he received from Ireland flank CJ Stander last June - a knock that kept him out for more than five months.

    Lambie, however, earlier this month insisted he would return to the game.

    "I will be playing rugby again and I certainly have no plans to retire. My focus for now is purely on making a full recovery and getting fit and strong again. Once the three-month rest period has been completed, I will be reassessed to determine where we are in terms of the rugby calendar for the rest of the 2017 season.”

    The 26-year-old Lambie boasts 56 Test caps for the Springboks, the last of which came against Wales in Cardiff last November.
