Southern Kings wing Sergeal Petersen is keen to join a South African Super Rugby franchise on loan for the 2014 season.

Petersen impressed for the Port Elizabeth-based franchise during the Super Rugby tournament earlier this year.

However, with the Kings relegated from next year's competition, he will be playing in the Vodacom Cup unless he can be added to one of the five other South African squads.

According to the EWN Sport website, Petersen has been negotiating with three Super Rugby franchises with the aim of representing them next year. The three franchises are believed to be the Stormers, Sharks and Cheetahs.

The 19-year-old flyer is contracted to the Kings until 2015, but they will allow him to go on-loan for the Super Rugby campaign should he reach an agreement with one of the franchises.

His agent, Wallis Roux, said they are considering their options at the moment and would like to get involved with a franchise that really shows an interest in him.

Meanwhile, it was also announced on Tuesday that Petersen will play for Kaizer Chiefs' rugby team in next weekend’s Sevens Premier League in George.
