European Giants Jostle For Mzansi’s R17m Star!

Interest has been pouring in for South Africa’s golden boy, Luther Singh, with a R17 million price tag placed on the star.

Singh, 23, who is on the books of Portuguese outfit SC Braga will have a lot of pondering to do over his future in the coming days, following his Olympic campaign with South Africa in Tokyo.

After spending the last season out on loan with Paços Ferreira, Singh was set to return to his mother club Braga, but according to Portuguese media, head coach of Braga, Carlos Carvalhal, does not see much of a future for Singh at the club.

Singh spent the last three seasons out on loan.

There is the option of rejoining Paços, who he helped secure a UEFA conference spot, with five goals and five assists last campaign – but the head coach Pedro Miguel Marques da Costa Filipe (Pepa), who lured Singh to the club has since joined Vitoria Guimaraes.

According to Polish website Interia Sport the Noordgesig-born star has landed on the radar of Lech Poznań, who seem eager to convince him to switch from Portugal to Poland.

The report outlines that Lech has prepared an offer of €250k (±R4.3m), to take him on loan this season, with the possibility to buy him for a mandatory €1m (±R17.4m), which is the price tag Braga has placed on the SA star.

The only snag in a possible deal could be that Lech does not participate in any European competitions, although the Polish outfit is believed to have earmarked Singh as their priority signing.

It has become clear that there is also interest from as far as Cyprus, with Omonia Nicosia believed to be keen on securing the talented youngster, though they will have to fend off interest from Boavista Porto, the latest club understood to be chasing Singh, albeit for a loan deal this campaign.

It now remains to be seen where Singh decides to play his football this season with a wide variety of clubs to choose from. 

Singh is amongst the most valuable South African players...
