Racing Metro coach Laurent Labit has confirmed the arrival of Blue Bulls scrum-half Ruan Snyman at the French club.
The 26-year-old South African represented the Bulls in Super Rugby this year and will join the club as an understudy to French international scrum-half Maxime Machenaud.
Labit broke the news through the Racing Metro 92 twitter account.
"A South African scrum-half will arrive next week," he said.
"We took the option in order to create competition for players who are behind Maxime Machenaud.
"This scrum-half in question is actually Ruan Snyman."
