Racing 92 have announced the signing of Stormers lock Gerbrandt Grobler ahead of the 2016/17 season on a three-year deal.

Grobler was found guilty at the beginning of the 2015 Super Rugby season of testing positive for a banned substance and was subsequently banned for two years.

The 24-year-old player will link up with the Top 14 champions once he is free to play again, which is in October later this year.

Grobler made five Super Rugby appearances for the Stormers after joining from the Bulls in 2011.
