Sale have added to their growing South African contingent by signing versatile prop Coenraad Oosthuizen from the Sharks on a three-year contract.
Oosthuizen won 30 caps for the Springboks from 2012 to 2017 and can operate on both sides of the scrum.
The 30-year-old will arrive at his new club upon completion of the current Super Rugby campaign and follows South Africa lock Lood De Jager in joining Sale.
Sharks director of rugby Steve Diamond said: "Coenie joining us, along with Lood (De Jager) is a huge statement of where we want to be.
"Coenie can play on both sides of the scrum and has a skillset away from the set piece that is unique for a prop of his size.
"He also has considerable experience playing with Akker van der Merwe at the Sharks, so I think he will fit in perfectly at Sale.
"We look forward to welcoming him to Manchester later in the year ahead of the 19/20 Gallagher Premiership."
Springboks Robert Du Preez and Akker Van Der Merwe have already agreed to join Sale, while scrum-half Faf De Klerk is an established presence at the AJ Bell Stadium.
