Cape Town - The Southern Kings are eager to obtain the services of Blue Bulls and Springbok back JJ Engelbrecht.

Die Burger reports that the Kings are currently negotiating with the Bulls to lure the 23-year-old back to his home city.

Engelbrecht, who is highly rated by Bok coach Heyneke Meyer, was schooled at Grey High in Port Elizabeth before joining Western Province after school. He joined the Bulls at the end of last year.

His contract at the Pretoria-based union only expires at the end of 2013 though, so the Kings will have to fight to lure him to the Friendly City.

Engelbrecht, who can play either centre or wing, made his Bok debut against Argentina at Newlands earlier this year.
