South African Midfielder To Sign?

Last updated : 27 December 2008 By Sam
The 24-year-old South African international midfielder had been close to moving to Craven Cottage in the summer but a work permit application was turned down and he was forced to remain with his club, the Golden Arrows .

"Fulham are in the process of applying for a work permit for me," he told South African newspaper, The Citizen.

"I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything will go according to plan.

"It has always been a dream of mine to ply my trade in Europe and I hope that I do get my opportunity in the English Premier League.

"There has been interest from other teams in Europe who want me to come for trials, but I would prefer joining Fulham who know me and are aware what I am capable of after spending some time with them in July.

"And with them trying to get me a work permit is proof that they are really interested in my services."
