Cape Town - The Sharks are set to announce their pre-season Super Rugby squad on Thursday - and the name Ruan Botha will appear on that list. 

The 23-year-old Stormers second rower is set for a move to Durban, while Springbok Pieter-Steph du Toit has moved from the Sharks to Newlands. 

A Sharks spokesperson on Wednesday told Sport24 that the deal between the union and Botha could not yet be officially confirmed due to a contract that still had to be signed.

However, the indication was that all of the paperwork would be wrapped up by Thursday. 

Meanwhile, Sharks are also expected to announce Namibian lock Tjiuee Uanivi as a further addition to their lock stocks. 

The Sharks open their Super Rugby campaign against the Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, February 27.
