Sale Sharks has secure the signature of Faf De Klerk till the end of 2023 season.
A nominee for the 2018 Player of the year, De Klerk had a great 2018 season not just for his club but also for the Springboks.
De Klerk joined the Sharks at the start of the 2017/18 Premiership Rugby season and made an instant impact in the team.
In 25 appearances for Sale in his first season, De Klerk scored 97 points showcasing his skill.
De Klerk said: “It’s humbling to know a club wants to extend your contract, even though you still have more than a year left on your current one!
“I would not have re-signed if I did not enjoy it here in the North West and really do believe in what we are trying to achieve here at Sale. I want to thank Dimes and the owners for giving me this opportunity and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
De Klerk is at this stage the number one scrumhalf for Erasmus Springboks side as well.
