Date published: June 23 2015

CJ van der Linde is rumoured to be the latest South African player headed for Montpellier according to reports.

The 34-year-old World Cup-winning prop will join Jake White's project according to Netwerk24.

He is currently at the EP Kings, where was both playing and acting as scrum coach, but will instead join Montpellier at the end of the month.

He joins the likes of Pierre Spies, Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis and Demetri Catrakilis, among many others, in joining the French club this off-season.

Van der Linde has previous experience of playing in Europe, during spells with both Leinster and London Irish, but he struggled for game time at both clubs because of injury.
