Cape Town - Springbok scrumhalf Cobus Reinach is reportedly on the verge of securing a big-money move to French club Montpellier. 

According to French publication Midi Olympique, the 29-year-old could make the move from Northampton Saints for the 2020/21 European season. 

The report adds that Reinach could be earning around R790 000 per month at his new club should the deal go through. 

Montpellier already have a number of South Africans on their books including Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis, Jan Serfontein and Johan Goosen. 

Handre Pollard, meanwhile, has also signed for Montpellier and he will join his new side after having recovered from the 2019 Rugby World Cup. 

Reinach was part of the Bok squad that lifted the Webb Ellis Cup on Saturday, making just two appearances in the tournament.

He scored the fastest hat-trick in World Cup history when the Boks beat Canada in the group stages.
