Cape Town - Golden Arrows' recent signing Kagisho Dikgacoi has revealed he would relish the opportunity to play in Europe once again if the opportunity arises.

The defensive midfielder spent two seasons in the English Premier League with Fulham before enjoying one of the best spells of his career with Crystal Palace in both the Championship and England's top flight for four years.

He then had two largely disappointing campaigns with Cardiff City and has since returned to sign for Abafana Bes'thende in the South African Premiership.

The 32-year-old made his name for the Durban-based outfit before making the move to England in 2009/10. The player has already made an impact for Arrows after scoring for the side against Maritzburg United.

Nonetheless, Dikgacoi has not ruled out a return to Europe. KG told the PSL's official website: "I guess if the legs can obviously carry on playing, I would love to go back to Europe. If it doesn't happen, I'm home and I can still play some football.

"I still believe age is on my side. Playing two or three more years of intense football, I think I'm capable of doing that. Obviously, I'd still like to achieve some silverware if possible, but I mean I am here to play and to compete."

The addition of Dikgacoi to the Arrows squad has seen the Durban-based outfit rise to the top end of the PSL standings as they sit in fourth position on the log.

Clinton Larsen's men will be looking to continue their impressive form when they travel to the Cape Town Stadium for a league encounter against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

Kick off is at 20:15.
