Bafana Bafana midfielder Keagan Dolly will not be returning to South Africa any time soon says the player's agent Paul Mitchell.

The 27-year-old former Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder has been playing for French side Montpellier since 2017.

He has sporadically been linked with a return to the Premier Soccer League, most notably Kaizer Chiefs, but Mitchell says Dolly is happy in Europe.

Speaking to SAFM, Mitchell said: "Dolly was in full training before lockdown and would have probably been on the bench for the next game.

"People forget that he broke his leg but thankfully the club values him and at this stage. He is definitely staying at Montpellier. So, there is no truth to reports that Dolly is coming back to South Africa."

He added: "The links to Chiefs are completely untrue. He is still only 27 and is in his prime.

"His focus is Europe and if he had to leave France, I'm very sure he won't be coming back to South Africa."

Dolly has played 43 times in three seasons for Montpellier, scoring once.
