Stade Francais have confirmed the signing of South Africa fly-half Morne Steyn on a three-year contract.

The 28-year-old, who has won 42 caps for the Springboks, will join the Top 14 side from the Bulls at the end of the season.

"It is a new challenge in my life," said Steyn. "When I signed, the weather was very nice outside - it's a sign!

"I cannot wait to arrive and to settle in Paris and to play in the Top 14. I am joining a great team and it would be brilliant to win the title next season, something they haven't achieved since 2007."

Steyn will be joined by Australia international Digby Ioane and Leinster prop Heinke Van der Merwe at Stade next season.
