New Top 14 Rugby club La Rochelle have announced that they have signed Stormers fly half Peter Grant for next season.

Twenty-nine-year-old Durban born Grant has played for the Stormers since 2006 but has played in Japan for Kobelco Steelers in the off-season since 2010.

Grant usually completes his commitments in Japan and then returns to Cape Town for the Super Rugby season and sometimes misses the opening rounds.

Grant's strenous double season of playing Super Rugby and in Japan's Top League have put his body under pressure and in 2013 he was hampered by injury and played just two matches for the Stormers.

In recent times Grant has dropped behind Kurt Coleman in the Stormers selection order.

The flyhalf has played for the emerging Springboks and won five caps for the Springboks during 2007 and 2008.

La Rochelle also announced that they had signed former Hurricanes lock Jason Eaton and Waratahs winger Alofa Alofa.
