Bloemfontein - Toyota Cheetahs fullback Hennie Daniller has confirmed that he will be leaving the side at the end of the Super Rugby to link up with Italian club, Zebre.
  
The 30 year-old was linked with a move to the club last year already, however, nothing came of the rumours.
 
A short while ago, the player told OFM Sport that his contract at the Central South African franchise expires at the end of October this year, however, he has been released from his contract to pursue his career in Europe.
 
Daniller becomes the side's second seasoned backline player to confirm a move abroad in recent days after utility back Riaan Smit confirmed a move to Oyonnax in France.
 
Daniller will join team-mate, lock Andries Ferreira, in the move.
 
The duo will link up with former Free State and Lions eighthman, Andries van Schalkwyk at the Parma-based club, as well as the 2,03m tall lock Quintin Geldenhuys who already has 46 test caps for Italy.
  
Tomorrow night the Cheetahs stalwart earns his 93rd Super Rugby cap when he runs out for the side against the Brumbies in Bloemfontein.
 
Kick-off at the Free State is at 19:10.
