Kings duo Shane Gates and Aidon Davis have both signed contracts that will see them ply their trade abroad at the end of the 2016 season.

Gates, is the Port Elizabeth outfit's current vice-captain, has secured a deal which see him move to Japan side the Shining Arcs while loose forward Davis will link up with the three-time European champions, Toulon ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Charl Crous, Kings CEO, confirmed that the duo will be leaving the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium side at the end of the Super Rugby season. 

Both players started their professional rugby in the Eastern Cape and Crous believes that this testifies of the great talent that resides in and around Port Elizabeth.

"We can confirm that both Shane and Aidon will be moving on at the end of the 2016 Super Rugby season,” he said," Crous told Sport24.

"Both Shane and Aidon are a testament to the talent that the Eastern Cape has to offer and we wish them everything of the best as they embark on the next chapter of their rugby careers."
