Bafana star leaves Fulham

2011-07-04 13:50

Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi has completed a £600 000 transfer from English Premiership club Fulham to Championship side Crystal Palace.

Sky News reports that Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman has confirmed that the midfielder is set to sign a permanent contract at Selhurst Park.

Freedman told The Advertiser that the former Golden Arrows player was a good signing for the club. "KG will sign on a permanent deal. He's my kind of player and I've persuaded the chairman to buy him,” said Freedman.

"At only 26 he is only going to get better with more games and I see it as a good investment for the football club. He wants to come here and play and I am only interested in players who are keen to play for Crystal Palace  and will make us a better side."

Dikgacoi joined Fulham in August 2009 but failed to nail down a first team place in the side and was loaned to Palace in February this year.

    Please write fair comments.Stop hating. Otherwise visit to vent out your pathological hatred for anyone who earns more than you, or who has made the most of their talent against all odds! We all wish we were like this young man!

      Stating the truth is not "hating". The problem is Bantwana supporters are delusional. They won one game against a completely disfunctional French team at the world cup and SA carries on like they won the cup. Fact is the Bantwana are a joke

    @everyone I agree with most of your comments, the term star is being over-used and should only be associated with people of Messi's calibre however, in this particular article it has been used in connection with his status with Bafana, not the whole world. He is in fact a "Bafana star". I am not a star but I am at the club i play with as I play regularly, score and create goals so in that sense I am a "Phola Park fc star" I hope we can put to rest this whole issue now.

      Ajax, you speak some sense. But I would argue that a "Phola Park FC star = not a star"

    He is a star in our country. What else is there to say "Good Luck" to him ?

      He is a star in his own bathtub

    Compared to any real stars in the english premiership he's no star... but compared to any psl "stars" he is one just because of the mere fact that he plays in the epl...
