Springbok star forward Pieter-Steph du Toit will reportedly play his last season as a Stormers player and cash in on a lucrative deal with Japanese Top League side Toyota Verblitz.
The flank returned from his long-awaited injury layoff to take to the field on Saturday at Cape Town Stadium for the first time in well over a year for the Stormers in a 33-30 defeat against the Sharks.
According to Netwerk24, the 28-year-old Du Toit will not be running around in a Stormers jumper for much longer as he is expected to move to Japan.
The 2019 Rugby World Cup winner was set to depart the Mother City for a European move with rugby giants Munster before the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) blocked the move.
Du Toit is likely to link up with his new team-mates at Toyota Verblitz later this year as he is expected to run out for the Springboks against the British and Irish Lions after the Rainbow Cup SA.
