According to a French sports media RMC Sport, Nyakane has agreed to join the Top 14 club until after the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.

Nyakane is currently still under contract with the Bulls, but Racing were so determined to secure Nyakane’s signature that they agreed to buy him out on the remainder of his contract.

While no official figures have been attached to Nyakane’s transfer fee, unconfirmed reports put them at around R5 million.
