The Cheetahs have been handed a boost with the news that Springbok full-back Willie le Roux has penned a new two-year deal in Bloemfontein.
According to Volskblad, the in-form 23-year-old has agreed to an extension despite Japanese and French clubs reportedly being interested.
"Willie has extended his contract as the Cheetahs for a further two years. He is an important player for us on attack and it's great news that he decided to sign with us," head coach Naka DrotskÃ© told the South African publication.
Le Roux has scored six tries this Super Rugby campaign and was recently rewarded for his ongoing strong form with his Springbok debut.
