Montpellier star signing Nemani Nadolo will link up with his new club in the first week of August.
Rugbyrama report that Nadolo is due to arrive in France next week as the club continue their pre-season preparations ahead of the first round of the Top 14 season on August 20.
Nadolo's successful time with the Crusaders came to an end last weekend after the side were knocked out by the Lions in the Super Rugby quarter-finals. Nadolo didn't play after pulling his hamstring.
Montpellier's other high-profile recruit on the wing, Joe Tomane, is due to link up with his new team-mates at the beginning of September.
Tomane missed a large chunk of the Super Rugby season and also the three-Test series against England due to a knee injury.
