Force second row Wilhelm Steenkamp is reportedly on his way to France to join Top 14 club Brive.
The South African lock is expected to sign a contract with the side in the next few days according to La Montagne.
Steenkamp has turned out for the Bulls, Sharks and Cheetahs in his home country before making the move to Perth.
He will link up with Brive's other new signings for the 2015/2016 campaign, Johan Snyman, Matthieu Ugalde and William Whetton.
Steenkamp's brother, De Kock, joined the Ospreys last season.
