According to Soccer Laduma, Erasmus reveals that he would be delighted to play for a European club again.

“I feel privileged to play for a big club like Orlando Pirates, this club is certainly as big as some club in Europe,” said the striker.

“I feel I’m at the right age and point to make a move to Europe, however I won’t do it without the Chairman’s blessings and it will have to be the right deal for me to consider it.”

The 24-year-old previously played for Dutch Eredivisie side, Feyenoord ,and then spent two seasons on loan at Excelsior.

Erasmus has hit the back of the net five times this season for the Buccaneers in 17 appearances and an overall of seven goals in all competitions.

The former SuperSport United striker will look to add to that tally when the PSL resumes as Pirates travel to KwaZulu-Natal to face AmaZulu at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday, February 11.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
