After arriving earlier this season as injury cover, Toulouse prop Schalk Ferreira has signed a three-year contract with the club.
The 29-year-old South African originally joined as a temporary replacement for Georgian prop Vasil Kakovin.
Ferreira began his career with Western Province and the Stormers before retiring due to a neck injury in 2009.
In 2011 however he reversed his decision and returned to playing first with Western Province, then with Eastern Province before playing for the Kings in the Currie Cup and Super Rugby.
Ferreira is now signed on with Toulouse until 2017 and has played 13 matches this season.
