South Africa could have another player playing in the UEFA Europa League next season, with a Bafana Bafana striker believed to be on the verge of joining a new club in Europe.
Thulani Serero’s Vitesse secured their spot in the tournament over the weekend as they beat Utrecht in the UEL play-off in the Netherlands, with the former Ajax Cape Town man bringing his first season with the club to a happy ending.
Now, according to reports coming out of both Holland and Bulgaria, Lars Veldwijk could become the latest player to secure a place in the 2018/19 UEL, with the 26-year-old reportedly having flown into the Bulgarian capital for talks with the club.
The former Nottingham Forest man hasn’t played since February due to a falling out with his head coach that allegedly involved the striker refusing to come on as a substitute, and it is now being reported that a mutual termination of his contract at the club has now been agreed.
If Veldwijk is to move to Bulgaria then he will be hoping to get the deal tied up shortly so that he can try and get his career back on track.
