Munster prop BJ Botha is set to sign a two-year deal with mega-spending Toulon this week according to reports in France.

The former South Africa prop would join an already impressive front-row roster at Toulon, including Andrew Sheridan, Gethin Jenkins and Carl Hayman with Martin Castrogiovanni and John Smit also heavily linked with moves to the south of France.

Botha joined Munster from Ulster at the start of the 2011/2012 season but could complete his move to Toulon by the end of the week according to L'Equipe.

The 33-year old was capped 26 times by South Africa after making his debut against the All Blacks in Pretoria in 2006.

Botha last played for the Sprinboks against Australia in the Tri-Nations game played in Brisbane in July 2010.
