Rantie Jets Into Turkey, Move Imminent?
Bafana Bafana international, Tokelo Rantie, has landed in Turkey and could well be on the verge of finalising a move away from AFC Bournemouth.
The 25-year-old has endured a difficult spell in England since his move from Malmo FF in Sweden in 2013, starting just 14 games in three seasons across the English Championship and English Premier League.
Now, having been left out of the club’s plans during the preseason for the current campaign, Rantie has been strongly linked with a move away from the Cherries, and it appears that he may be moving closer to that happening.
Rantie posted videos on his Snapchat account of him flying into Turkey over the last 24 hours, and the Siya crew has been informed that Stuart Baxter’s former side, Genclerbirligi, could be a possible destination for him.
While it remains to be seen if Rantie is indeed in Turkey to complete a move, and if so, which club is looking to bring him on board, but his caption of ‘the journey continues’ one on of his posts seems to suggest that he is on the move.
The Siya crew will continue to monitor the situation, as the striker has arrived in Turkey and is set to have a medical with Genclerbirligi. If all goes to plan, the deal could be concluded by the end of the week.
