    Naka: We'll try our best!

    2014-03-28 11:28
    Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské says the union will try its best to hold on to the services of Springbok flyhalf Johan Goosen.

    Goosen, 21, secretly flew to France earlier this week to explore possible future career opportunities.

    The club Goosen went to visit is believed to be Top 14 side, Racing Metro, while French big spenders Toulon, the Bulls and a few clubs from Japan are also interested.

    Drotské told the Volksblad website the Cheetahs will make him the best offer they possibly can and hope that he decides to stay.

    Goosen's contract with the Cheetahs expires on October 31 this year and it's unlikely Drotské will allow him to leave before then.

    Outside clubs are only allowed to officially negotiate with players 120 days (July 1) prior to the ending of their contract.

    The Cheetahs have a bye week in Super Rugby, with their next game scheduled at home against the Blues on April 5.
