Bafana Prospect’s R8m Serie A Move Completed
As previously reported by the Siya crew, potential Bafana Bafana defender, Joel Untersee, has completed his move to Serie A side, Empoli.
The 24-year-old, who has been with Juventus since 2010, has spent the last few seasons out on loan with various clubs, most recently with Empoli in a deal that included an option to buy should they win promotion from Serie B.
Now, with the new campaign on the horizon, Empoli have confirmed the arrival of the full back, a player who Stuart Baxter has confirmed has intentions of playing for Bafana Bafana going forward if the opportunity arises.
Untersee has represented Switzerland at all youth levels having been brought up there, however, he is eligible for South Africa due to him being born in Roodepoort before he left the country as a child.
Baxter revealed that the versatile defender is open to playing for Bafana, although at this point in time he is yet to receive his first call-up.
