Cape Town - Southern Kings hooker Michael Willemse has reportedly agreed to join Scottish club Edinburgh.

Netwerk24 reported on Sunday that the 25-year-old will head to Murrayfield after the current PRO14 campaign.

Willemse was schooled at Grey High School in Port Elizabeth and represented Eastern Province at junior level before heading for Cape Town where he played for the Ikey Tigers in the 2013 Varsity Cup.

He was on Western Province’s books between 2013 and 2016, before returning to Port Elizabeth.

He had a brief stint in Johannesburg at the Lions in 2017 before returning to the Kings, who he has often captained.

The Kings are currently at the bottom of Conference B in the PRO14, having won just one out of 11 games.

Their next encounter is a local derby against the Cheetahs in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
