Worcester have signed South Africa international centre Francois Venter.

The Warriors have announced a two-year deal for Venter, who will move to Sixways from Guinness PRO14 side the Cheetahs this summer.

The 26-year-old has won seven caps and made more than 50 appearances in the southern hemisphere's Super Rugby competition.

Venter made his Test debut against England in November 2016, while he started in the narrow defeat to Wales three months ago.

Worcester rugby director Alan Solomons said: "Francois is a fantastic player, and we are thrilled to be bringing him to Sixways.

"He is an experienced international, and I have no doubt that he will play a big role at Sixways."
