Springbok and Stormers lock Eben Etzebeth is set to further his career in Japan according to media reports.
Japonrugby.net reports that the 23-year-old will join Bok fly-half Handré Pollard at the NTT-Docomo Red Hurricanes after the Springboks' Rugby World Cup campaign in England later this year.
Like Pollard, Etzebeth is also set to join the Japanese club on a three-month contract. That would mean he will return to take part in the Stormers' 2016 Super Rugby campaign.
The 33-Test Springbok's contract with Western Province expires at the end of the 2016 season and he was also linked with a move to Toulon at the end of the 2014 season.
