Reports: Handre Pollard set to land £1m-a-season deal

Springbok and Bulls flyhalf Handre Pollard could be enticed with a £1m-a-season (R20 million) deal in France at the end of this year's Rugby World Cup.

Netwerk24 have reported that the 25-year-old has been in contact with Montpellier this week and offered him a contract worth around R20 million (£1.09m) a season, with Blue Bulls Company CEO Alfonso Meyer claiming there has been no official offer but they were aware of the French club’s interest in their player.

Pollard, who has won 39 Test caps, has been with the Bulls since 2013 and his contract is set to expire at the end of October.

World Cup winner Aaron Cruden has also been linked with a move away from Montpellier, with reports suggesting that Glasgow Warriors are keen in signing the 30-year-old.

Cruden played under Dave Rennie both internationally for New Zealand under 20s and in the Chiefs' two-time Super Rugby title-winning side.
