Bok duo to join Ackermann at Gloucester?
TRANSFER NEWS: Gloucester head coach Johan Ackermann could be a vital component in the move of two Springboks and Lions stars to the Premiership side.
Springbok prop Ruan Dreyer and centre Ruan Janse van Rensburg have been linked with a move to Gloucester, according to reports.
The duo played under Joahan Ackerman at the Super Rugby franchise the Lions and have helped the team reached back-to-back Super Rugby finals.
According to the GloucestershireLive, 27-year-old Dreyer could be the man to fill the void left by John Afoa at Gloucester.
The All Black prop Afoa joined Bristol for the 2018 season and reports have been circulating that a deal has been reached for Dreyer to make the move to Kingsholm later this year.
Meanwhile, Janse van Rensburg, who is currently on loan at Sale Sharks is also likely to reunite with Ackermann.
Sale Sharks are keen to sign the Springbok on a permanent basis, however, acccording to the Rugby Paper ,Gloucester are now favourites to seal the centre's services.
Speaking to GloucestershireLive about his future last week, Janse van Rensburg said: "Anything can happen - that's the exciting thing about rugby. One day you can be in South Africa, the next day you can be in Sale or France or wherever.
"I'm excited about my future wherever it is. If it's with the Lions if it's with Sale… I know it's going to be the right decision whatever does happen,"
