No SA return for Khumalo

Johannesburg - Former Bafana Bafana captain, Bongani Khumalo, will not be returning to South Africa, and is willing to fight for a place at Tottenham Hotspur.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, the 26-year-old’s future currently hangs in the balance, with reports in England suggesting that the defender had been transfer-listed by Spurs.

However, Khumalo’s South African agent, Glyn Binkin, insisted that was not the case, something his representative in England, Matt Kleinman, has now reiterated.

Khumalo has experienced a difficult time in Europe since leaving SuperSport United, struggling to break into Tottenham’s first team and spending most of his time out on loan.

It’s believed that a whole host of South African clubs have shown an interest in landing the tall centre back, although his English representative has explained that isn’t an option for him.

Speaking to Soccer-Laduma, Kleinman said, “Bongani aspires to keep playing in Europe, he’s going to return to Spurs for pre-season and he’s determined to fight for his place. We’re looking to see if there are some options if it doesn’t happen for him there this season, but he’s comfortable with his situation.”

Khumalo spent the latter part of last season out on loan with Greek giants, PAOK, putting in a number of good performances for the club towards the end of their campaign before leaving once his loan period expired.
