Cape Town - Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn is in high spirits after extending his stay at French champions Stade Francais.

Steyn on Wednesday signed for another two years with the Parisian club.

He was their hero in the Top 14 final last season when he kicked all their points in a 12-6 win over Clermont in the final at the Stade de France.

“I’m happy to sign another two years with the club. We just saw last year what the club can do when we won it (Top 14),” Steyn said via a video uploaded to the club's official website.

The 31-year-old joined Stade Francais from the Bulls in 2013 and now looks set to finish his career in France.

“Hopefully in the next few years we can do the same (winning titles), so I’m very happy to stay another two years in Paris.”

Steyn was part of the Springbok squad at the recent Rugby World Cup, but received limited game time, with Handre Pollard and Pat Lambie ahead of him in the flyhalf pecking order.

He made his Springbok debut in 2009 and has 60 Test caps to his name.
