Cape Town - Montpellier flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis is reportedly set to leave the Top 14 club at the end of the season.

L'Equipe is reporting that Catrakilis will head back to South Africa at the end of his contract in June 2017 to return to Super Rugby, with the hope of playing for South Africa.

Montpellier are coached by former Springbok mentor Jake White and their hunt for a replacement No 10 is allegedly underway, with Ben Botica, recently signed from Harlequins, the club's other option at flyhalf.

Catrakilis scored 16 points in Montpellier's 26-9 Challenge Cup title win over Harlequins earlier this year.

The 27-year-old has previously played in Super Rugby for both the Kings and Stormers.
