Parker hoping for Greece loan
Johannesburg - Bernard Parker has confirmed he is on his way to Greece where he
hopes to finalise a loan deal with Super League club Panserraikos FC.
The Bafana Bafana striker was set to move to English Championship
side Leicester City, but the transfer fell through after The Foxes
signed Nigerian forward Yakubu Aiyegbeni.
Now Parker could be signing with Panserraikos FC. "Actually, you
just caught me as I'm getting on the plane to Greece. I honestly don't
know what's going on at this stage, but I know the Greek team is
interested," Parker told Football365.co.za.
"What matters to me is I get game time wherever I go, but at the
moment I don't think it is a done deal because Twente are talking to the
"So nothing has been finalised right now but I'm on my way to Greece, so in a day or so I will know what's going to happen."
Panserraikos coach, a Serbian called Dragan Kokotovic, apparently knows Parker from his days at Red Star Belgrade.
