Kaizer Chiefs team manager Bobby Motaung tells KickOff.com that Onismor Bhasera is close to joining English Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
The Zimbabwean left back is in dispute with Kaizer Chiefs over his contract, claiming it expired last year in June as he looked to make a move to Portsmouth where he had been offered a three-year contract, but Chiefs maintained that they had a year option on the player and extended it.
The matter was referred to Fifa towards the end of last year, but to date no decision had been taken.
Bhasera is now training with Rangers, after he was invited by former Portsmouth coach Paul Hart, who has also left Rangers, but Bhasera looks set to stay longer at the club as Chiefs reveal that the two teams are negotiating and in "good faith", unlike with Portsmouth, the club that was adamant that they were not going to pay Chiefs for Bhasera, who had informed them that he is a free agent.
"We have started negotiating with QPR and I think they are going to take the boy," Motaung reveals to KickOff.com.
"I will follow-up it up tomorrow. We want Bhasera to play football and it looks like he might join QPR as negotiations are going well so far," Motaung adds.
