Sale have signed South Africa centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg from Super Rugby side Lions following a successful loan spell with the Sharks last season.

The 23-year-old scored three tries in eight appearances for Sale between November and February after joining the Premiership side on a short-term deal.

He has now agreed a three-year contract at the AJ Bell Stadium.

"He is another building block in our desire to be a top-four team," director of rugby Steve Diamond said.

Van Rensburg made his international debut against Wales in Cardiff in 2016, but it remains his only Springboks cap so far.
