The brilliant Springbok fullback will play for the Cheetahs until the end of the 2015 season thanks two a R2million deal.
Le Roux, who played for Boland and Griquas, has been sensational for the Cheetahs in the last two Super Rugby seasons.
He was capped at fullback for the Boks for the first time against Italy and played all three June internationals.
Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen, who missed most of the season because of injury, has also confirmed a contract extension.
Both players were offered lucrative contracts to go elsewhere. Impressive midfielder Robert Ebersohn is another who has committed to the franchise.
