Lech Poznan’s head coach, Mariusz Rumak, says that he hopes the club will exercise their one-year option on the Bafana Bafana international.
The 24-year-old has found some form in the last few weeks, scoring in the 4-0 win over Ruch Chorzow last night, helping Kolejorz qualify for next year’s Europa League.
There has been lots of talk regarding Claasen's future at the club, with some criticising his form in the early parts of 2014, however he looks to have won over the coach with his recent performances.
Speaking after last night’s win, Rumak said, “I hope it was not a farewell appearance Daylon Claasen in front of a Poznan audience. I talked to him recently and he told me that he feels good here."
“It all depends on the agent's conversations with the authorities of the club. Let's see what they will bring, but I hope that Daylon will be with us. He's a good football player, he’s adapted to our game, acclimatised in Poland and is a player who can we feel still has a lot to give.”
There has been reports in Poland that Poznan may ask Claasen to take a wage cut if he is to stay on next season, though that has not been confirmed by any officials involved in the deal.
