Cape Town - The Eastern Province Kings have secured the services of Free State Cheetahs defence coach Michael Horak, a report on the Volksblad website indicates.

The 36-year-old Horak, who is also Varsity Cup side Shimlas' head coach, will first finish all his duties in Bloemfontein before heading to Port Elizabeth later this year - on a five-year deal.

It's still unsure in what capacity he will be appointed at the Kings. Head coach Matt Sexton recently resigned to return to his country of birth, New Zealand.

The Kings also recently announced the signing of former All Black Carlos Spencer as backline coach - also on a five year deal.

Horak, who played fullback for England during his playing days, has been the Cheetahs' defence coach since 2010.
