Anele Ngcongca still at Belgian champions Racing Genk

Anele Ngcongca's agent says speculation that the 23-year-old will leave Belgian champions Racing Genk is 'premature'.
The Bafana Bafana right back has already expressed his desire to move to a bigger club in an interview with KickOff.com last month after helping his current employers to win their first title in nearly a decade last season. But with less than a month to go until the close of the transfer window, Mike Makaab of ProSports International admits there have been no serious offers yet. "There's a lot of interest but to talk about him moving anywhere just yet would be premature," he tells KickOff.com. "We have been doing a lot of marketing around Europe with Genk's blessing but we are going to wait until we have something more concrete. Anele is an excellent prospect who wants to play at the very highest level." After receiving a straight red card for violent conduct in Genk's 2-1 victory over Partizan Belgrade last week, Ngcongca is suspended for the second leg of their Champions League qualifier in Serbia on Wednesday night. His 32 minutes on the pitch in the first leg also mean that he would be ineligible to play in the competition for another club and Makaab hints that could be a reason to stay in Belgium. "It would be a great stage for him to play so hopefully Genk can make it through the qualifying stages and Anele can experience the top level of European football," he says.
