Stormers full-back Joe Pietersen has reportedly signed for Top 14 side Biarritz according to the player's agent on Twitter.
Pietersen previously spent a season playing in the Top 14 for Bayonne in 2010-2011.
However, Pietersen returned from France reportedly due to his family being unsettled away from South Africa.
The full-back has racked up 154 points for the Stormers so far this season in Super Rugby.
With his contract set to expire with the side at the end of this year's Currie Cup, it can expected that Pietersen will move to France in November.
The Stormers and Biarritz are yet to comment on the move.
