Posted: 20 February 2013 Time: 13:32

The Stars of Africa Academy – where respected local coach and analyst Farouk Khan is a director – has exported yet another player abroad in Ayanda Nkili.

The centre-back has completed his move to join Swedish Second Division club Orebro SK after local clubs ignored his talents.

Nkili is already in Sweden with Orebro – who were relegated from the top division last season – preparing for the start of the new campaign which kicks off at the beginning of April.

The 22-year-old has already agreed terms on his contract with Orebro, paving way for him to start off his career in Europe. has been told by officials at the academy that Nkili is a future Bafana Bafana centre-back as he is an amazing talent who local clubs have ignored owing to that he has no experience in the PSL.

Stars of Africa Academy already have another three players plying their trade in Sweden in May Mahlangu, Tokelo Rantie and Bradley Ralani.

Mahlangu and Rantie, who were in Bafana’s Africa Cup of Nations squad, both moved to Sweden without having played professional football in South Africa, though the latter then came back for a brief spell at Orlando Pirates before returning to Europe.

Good for development,he can come handy in the future and partner Mathoho,Matlaba,Mabaso/Moleko in Bafana Bafana.Nut for soccer aspirations, he must forget about playing in top 5 Europeans countries,if the Sweddish player of the year can't get a contract with the Top 5,he must just forget.
