Cape Town - Former Kings coach Alan Solomons has no immediate plans to return to South Africa after extending his stay at Scottish club Edinburgh.

Edinburgh announced on their official website that Solomons recently signed an extension to his contract, keeping him at the club until June 2017.

Scottish Rugby Chief Executive Mark Dodson commented: “Alan is successfully building on the improved performances achieved by Edinburgh Rugby last season, which saw them reach the European Challenge Cup Final and secure the 1872 Cup.

“The club has made a positive start to the new season and we wanted to ensure Alan was able to continue to develop the vision he started in 2013. We are therefore very pleased he has committed to Edinburgh through to 2017.”

Solomons, who joined Edinburgh in 2013 after coaching the Southern Kings in Super Rugby, commented: “While we have made good progress over the past two seasons, we still have some way to go and I am pleased to be able to continue to build on what we have achieved.”
