Cape Town - After reports that his job was hanging in the balance, the Southern Kings have confirmed that they are in talks with Deon Davids regarding his future.

In a statement released on Tuesday afternoon the Kings said discussions were ongoing.

"We can confirm that the Southern Kings are in discussions with Deon Davids regarding his future options with the franchise. More details will be shared if an agreement has been reached between the parties," concluded the statement.

A report on Netwerk24 on Monday suggested that Davids could, along with 20 contracted players at the union, be let go as the new ownership of the Eastern Cape consortium that bought them out in March conducts a clean-out.

The report added that Sharks assistant coach Sean Everitt was one of the front-runners to take the job.

Then, on Tuesday, current EP Kings team manager Thando Manana took to Twitter to announce that, according to his information, Davids was set to be sacked on Wednesday.
