Date published: March 30 2015

Former World Cup-winning coach Jake White has reportedly signed a new contract to remain with Montpellier long-term.

White joined the Top 14 side after leaving the Sharks at the end of the last Super Rugby season.

Midi Olympique reported on Monday that White had signed a new contract to keep him in France until 2017.

White's original contract was only until the end of the season, after replacing Fabien Galthié in December, but Montpellier have noticeably improved during his short time in charge so far.

The club are 9th in the Top 14 and have made a number of new signings for next season including Nic White, Demetri Catrakilis, Jacques du Plessis and Marcel van der Merwe.
