Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana legend Siphiwe Tshabalala has been linked with what would be a shock move to Europe. Reports indicate that Tshabalala will be flying to Turkey to undergo assessments and medical tests with Erzurumspor FC.
Reports have emerged that the transfer has been agreed to in principle by Erzurumspor and Kaizer Chiefs and will now move to the assessment phase.
Sport24.com reported that Erzurumspor announced on its website that the Kaizer Chiefs striker would be joining the club. The club claims the official unveiling will take place two days after Tshabalala arrives in Turkey.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Tshabalala will sign an initial two-year contract with the club and will be given the number ten jersey.
Erzurumspor is according to Soccerladuma.co.za one of the teams taking part in Turkey’s Premier Football League which is called the Super Lig. The team are currently in 16th position on the log having lost both of their opening matches.
Tshabalala has spent the past 11 seasons with Kaizer Chiefs.
Following an impressive performance at the 2010 World Cup on home soil and also winning the South African footballer of the year accolade, Tshabalala was heavily linked with various moves overseas.
None of those moves materialised and Tshabalala instead opted to remain loyal to the Amakhosi. He has since become one of the best-known footballers in the country.
