Cape Town - It appears a done deal that Gary Gold will be appointed as the man to succeed Jake White as Director of Rugby at the Sharks.

White left the Sharks in mysterious circumstances last month with reports indicating there was growing discord between himself and management, as well as with the players.

Gold, a former Springbok assistant coach, was in recent weeks mentioned as the frontrunner to replace White, while the names of Brendan Venter, John Mitchell and Nick Mallett were also mentioned.

According to the Rugby365 website, Gold will be the man in charge of the Sharks next season. The formalities are expected to be completed by Friday, but it is uncertain when Sharks CEO John Smit will make the announcement.

Gold, 47, currently coaches Japanese club Kobelco Steelers, but it is believed he has agreed to terms to depart and move to Durban.

Sharks Currie Cup coach Brad Mac­Leod-Henderson, along with his assistants - Paul Anthony and Sean Everitt - will form part of a deputy coaching trio under Gold.
