Springboks flanker Heinrich Brussow has extended his Super Rugby contract with the Free State Cheetahs until 2013.
Brussow turned down several lucrative offers and agreed to stay in Bloemfontein with the Cheetahs.
"Heinrich wants to play for the Cheetahs," his agent Stephan Weyers told Volksblad.
"He is loyal towards his team-mates, coaches and supporters and is positive about the future of Cheetah-rugby," said Weyers.
"Heinrich could earn more money at other places, but he is happy in Bloemfontein where he owns property, has shares in businesses and is close to his parents, girlfriend and friends."
Weyers went on to say that Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske had a big influence on Brussow's decision to stay.
