Siegfried Fisi’ihoi is set to join Top 14 outfit Stade Francais, subject to passing a medical, according to reports in the French press.
The 30-year-old Chiefs’ front-rower traveled to Paris on Monday and is expected to sign as an additional player later this week once the formalities are complete, Midi Olympique reports.
With Argentinian prop Ramiro Herrera due to arrive at the club in November, this latest signing should finally close the book on the club’s recruitment program for the year.
Fisi’ihoi has been capped twice by Tonga and has been brought in to provide some much-needed front-row cover at Stade Jean Bouin.
He was called up into Chiefs wider training squad in 2016. Injuries Nepo Laulala and Pauliasi Manu meant he got plenty of game time during his first year in Hamilton.
