Bulls set sights on Goosen

    Cape Town - The Bulls are reportedly eager to attain the services of Springbok and Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen.

    The 21-year-old's contract with the Cheetahs expires on October 31 this year and it appears the Cheetahs will have their hands full to convince him to stay in Bloemfontein.

    Outside unions are only allowed to officially negotiate with players four months (July 1) prior to the ending of their contract, but according the Volksblad website, the Bulls have already shown interest.

    "We're investigating all options for Johan. The Bulls have always expressed interest in Johan, but they'll have to wait until the transfer period for local teams," said Goosen's agent, Anthony Johnson.

    "The Cheetahs have indicated they want to keep Goosen. We're busy making decisions but for now it's important that Johan gets game time. We'll monitor his progress over the next two months and then make a decision."

    Big-spending French club, Toulon, are reportedly also after Goosen's services, as well as a few clubs in Japan.
