South African second-rower JP du Preez has agreed to join Glasgow from Sale Sharks for next season, subject to a visa being granted.

The 27-year-old from Roodepoort is 6ft 10ins tall and has made 18 appearances since moving to the English Premiership side from the Cheetahs last November.

Du Preez is relishing the prospect of moving to Scotstoun next summer.

He told the Warriors website: “Glasgow play a style of rugby that I like to play – running rugby with a hard and physical edge.

“I like to think I’ll compliment their style of play and I believe I bring strong lineout presence and a physicality in both attack and defence.

“I’ve played against Warriors in the past and they’re a very tough side to compete against, especially in Glasgow in front of their home fans.

“I can’t wait to be a part of the team.”

Head coach Danny Wilson believes he will add physicality to the Glasgow squad. He said: “We’ve been impressed with JP’s recent performances for Sale.

“He’s the type of physical player we wanted to add to our squad.

“He brings a wealth of experience having played in the PRO14, Premiership and Super Rugby and we look forward to welcoming him to the club next season.”
