Heerenveen Enter Race For Mahlangu
11 January 2013
The interest in Helsingborg FC and Bafana Bafana midfielder May Mahlangu has been amplified, with Dutch side Heerenveen making enquiries into the player’s availability.
Mahlangu is currently in camp with his Bafana teammates in preparation for the African Cup of Nations, scheduled to commence on January 19.
The Siya crew recently reported that the Secunda-born player has attracted interest from French Ligue 1 side Valenciennes, with discussions between the respective parties having already been initiated.
However, the latest news reaching the Siya crew is that Heerenveen are keen on bringing the highly-rated youngster to the Netherlands, with an exit away from Sweden looking likely for Mahlangu.
The 23-year-old will be looking to shine in Gordon Igesund’s Bafana team during the Afcon, which will undoubtedly enhance the chances of a move to one of Europe's more established leagues.
Mahlangu has got one year left to run on his deal with Helsingborg, and the club will be looking to cash in on the former Swedish Player of the Year.
