Ulster players Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding are to leave the club after they were acquitted of rape charges, Sky sources say.
A statement from the club and Irish Rugby Football Union is expected on Saturday after a review into the players’ future.
Ireland internationals Jackson, 26, and Olding, 25, were found not guilty of rape last month following a trial at Belfast Crown Court. Jackson was also cleared of sexual assault.
Two other men, Blane McIlroy, 26, and Rory Harrison, 25, were acquitted of lesser charges connected to the case.
