French Giants To Come In For Pirates Youngster In 2018?
Orlando Pirates Young Star Monitored Overseas
Orlando Pirates’ Lyle Foster is avoiding the discussion of the reports linking him with a move to France.
As previously reported by the Siya crew, the Bucs starlet has attracted interest from French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco, having impressed the European giants.
Towards the end of last year, the 17-year-old striker spent time training with the French giants as they assessed him closer. While it is believed that the Bafana Bafana international impressed, the striker would only be able to sign with the club once he turns 18 - should they pursue their interest.
In an exclusive interview in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma,1 077, the young forward who was part of Stuart Baxter’s Bafana Bafana COSAFA squad, preferred to remain silent on his potential move to France.
“Look, sorry, man, no comment on that. I really cannot comment on that now,” said Foster.
“I am not at liberty to talk about it now, man. I wish I could, but sadly, I cannot. You can call me and ask me that question again after six months from now,” he further stated.
Foster will turn 18 on September 3, and it remains to be seen if Monaco will present an official offer for him at that point.
Don’t miss out on Foster’s great interview in this week's edition 1077 of Soccer Laduma, where the young star speaks about his promotion to Bucs’ senior team last year, following a trip to England with SA’ national U20 team, the feeling of scoring his first goal for the Soweto giants, as well as appearing on the list of 60 most promising young players in the world as compiled by UK newspaper, The Guardian.
