Cape Town - Burkina Faso international forward Aristide Bance says he is open to a return to the Premiership, ahead of his side AFCON semi-final against Egypt.

The 32-year-old journeyman has formed an integral part of his side's progression in the tournament and has managed to find the back of the net on two occasions - once in his side's 2-1 loss against in the opening tie against Congo, in addition to his venomous strike in the 2-0 victory against Tunisia in the quarter-final.

Despite enduring a rather miserable stint at Chippa United, having appeared 16 times and scored three goals in all competitions for the side - the lanky forward highlighted his desire to make a return to the Premiership.

"South Africa is a good country with a good championship and good players and if there is an offer for me l will consider coming back," he told reporters after the victory against Tunisia.

"However, it will have to be a club with a good chairman. I don't like being with a club led by a director who will not meet my contractual agreements.

"So honestly speaking if I get another chance with another club I will be ready to play again in the South African championship. I am still open to the negotiations.

"I am still open to come and play in the South African championship again. After all I am a player who always gives his best when he goes onto the field."
