Montpellier table massive deal for Bok
TRANSFER NEWS: Springbok and World Cup winner Cobus Reinach could become the latest South African that signs a very lucrative deal with Montpellier.
According to the French online newspaper, Midi Olympique, the scrumhalf is on the verge of moving from the Premiership club Northampton Saints for the 2020-21 season.
It has been reported that Montpellier offer a sum of €48,000 (R789,590) per month in their attempt to lure the 29-year-old to France.

Reinach made two appearances during the Springboks’ World Cup campaign and made history by scoring the tournament’s fastest hat-trick of tries against Canada in the pool stages.
It will certainly be a big loss for Northampton Saints should the deal go through. The 29-year-old has been a valuable asset at the Premiership since joining them in 2017. Last season he managed to top the try-scoring charts with 12 tries and helped Northampton Saints reach the semifinals.
Meanwhile, Springboks flyhalf Handre Pollard has already signed for Montpellier and will head to France after concluding all his World Cup duties.
The French club have a number of South Africans on their books including Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis, Jan Serfontein and Johan Goosen.
