World-class scrum-half Faf de Klerk is to sign a contract extension at Sale to head off interest from rival Gallagher Premiership clubs.
The new de Klerk contract is part of Sale’s bid to attract top Springbok talent to the AJ Bell Stadium with Rob and Jean du Preez being offered long-term deals
Diamond told RugyPass: “Faf’s looking to extend for three or four years and so is Jono Ross. There is no chance of Faf going anywhere else and my message to other clubs is simple “ go and find your own players!” The du Preez brothers are doing well having joined us and we will be looking to extend their stay.
“Our recruitment drive is in South Africa at the moment with some of Faf’s mates. We are in intense talks with a prop, hooker and lock to come after the World Cup, They are all current South Africa internationals and we are in a good place.”
