Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana captain, Itumeleng Khune, has been itching to leave South Africa for an overseas move ever since the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Khune is arguably South Africa’s finest goalkeepers - and now Muhsin Ertugral is adding his valuable word about Itu in Germany.

Soccer Laduma are reporting that Ertugral, who has since been back in Turkey after resigning from his head coach role at Ajax Cape Town due to the death of his foster father, has been in contact with Hanover 97’s technical director and recommended Itu to the Bundesliga club.

The 27-year-old started out as a defender before Kaizer Chiefs development youth coach, Terror Sephoa converted him into a shot stopper.

He has been a Glamour Boy since 1999 and got his first taste of first team soccer in 2007/08 season after the departure of Rowen Fernandez.

Khune’s most notable accolade is winning the Absa Premiership Goalkeeper of the Season for two consecutive campaigns, including in 2012/13 where he helped Amakhosi win the PSL with some of his finest performances during that season.

Do you think Itumeleng Khune has what it takes to play Europe?
