Cape Town City goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh is reportedly set to leave the club to return abroad to further his career.
According to reports, Leeuwenburgh is set to join FC Groningen in the Eredivisie in the Netherlands.
Before he joined the Citizens in 2018, the lanky shot-stopper had previously never played in Mzansi and had spent most of his career in the Netherlands.
The 27-year-old has been the number one goalkeeper for the Mother City outfit and has played in every single match so far in the 2020/21 season.
“A return to the Netherlands is imminent for Peter Leeuwenburgh. FC Groningen is in talks with the 27-year-old Cape Town City keeper about a collaboration. FC Groningen can take over Leeuwenburgh transfer-free from the South African club, where Jan Olde Riekerink is trainer,” Dutch website, Voetbal International reports.
Leeuwenburgh’s contract with City will run until June 2023 after the club added a new two-year deal on his initial deal in 2019.
