South Africa star Francois Steyn is considering a return to Super Rugby with the Sharks.
The 24-year-old says he has been discussing his future with current club Racing Metro as well as the Super Rugby franchise. Steyn, who has won 47 caps for the Springboks, moved to the French Top 14 in 2009 but is weighing up a return to South Africa, after the Sharks revealed they are optimistic of re-signing the back.
"I don't know what I am going to do yet, return or stay at Racing," he wrote on twitter. "But the Sharks and Racing Metro have been talking to me.
"I will give an answer within the next week ... will let you know."
