The big guns in the Absa Premiership are on alert as an international defender is considering a move to Mzansi in his next deal – the Siya crew has learnt.
With his deal nearing an end at his current club FC Samtredia in Georgia, Ghanaian international defender Samuel Inkoom is keen on a move to Mzansi, having been attracted to the country when he came to play in the World Cup in 2010 for Black Stars.
As reported in edition 1189 of Soccer Laduma, Inkoom confirmed that he would be interested in plying his trade in Mzansi, although he says he is still happy at FC Samtredia and keen to honour his contract until the end.
“I have an agent in Michael and at the moment he is the one doing everything. The thing is, I have a contract with my team here in Georgia. He (Ngobeni) is the one controlling everything, and because I have a contract here, I cannot talk too much about such things (interested clubs),” said Inkoom.
“My contract will finish at the end of the season and we (him and his agent) do have a couple of options that we have discussed. But I told him (Ngobeni) that because I played in the World Cup in South Africa, I would love to play there. In football, you never know what will happen and I have left everything on Michael to decide. He knows what is best for me – we have been working together for a long time,” he said.
“I have been following the league for some time, and when you talk about African leagues, the South African league is one of the best leagues. I know some of the big teams there, but I don’t have a right to mention them because I have a contract here and I don’t want to create problems,” the defender explained.
Inkoom’s Mzansi-based agent, Michael Ngobeni of M Sport Management, confirmed that he has had discussions with unnamed teams in SA about the player, while also revealing that the defender has attracted interest from Egypt and Turkey respectively.
