Aaron Cruden looks to be on his way to Europe.

Top 14 side Montpellier have completed the signing of Chiefs and All Blacks outhalf Aaron Cruden on a deal from 2017/18, according to Midi Olimpique.

The 28-year-old, who has 43 caps for his country, has reportedly agreed a two-year contract with the option of a third at €800,000 per season.


Club president Mohad Altrad has long been an admirer of Cruden and is set to replace the outgoing Demetri Catrakilis, who moves to Harlequins.

The deal will see Cruden link up with fellow Kiwi Vern Cotter who take over at Montpellier next season.
