OK it’s on the BBC site now – he’s gone … but maybe next year:

“Dale Steyn hopes to return to Hampshire next summer after a successful stint with the county. South Africa fast bowler Steyn took 20 wickets in five County Championship appearances.

The 35-year-old has returned home before the end of the season to prepare for his country’s one-day series against Zimbabwe later this month. “I’ve really enjoyed playing here, but I’ve still got a lot to offer in international cricket,” Steyn said, “There’s 500 Test wickets and 100 Test appearances that I would still like to achieve.

“But the reality is they’re both going to be quite difficult to achieve and will take me some time, possibly another two-and-half years. “Will South Africa still want to pick a 38-year-old by then? I don’t know.”

Steyn is centrally contracted with Cricket South Africa until July, after the 2019 World Cup, and feels another spell in county cricket could follow it”.

(of course I guess we could sign someone else for the two matches. Is Alistair Cook an overseas now?)
