KickOff.com can confirm that New Zealand goalkeeper Glenn Moss is wanted by three South African clubs as he nears the possibility of playing in the PSL.

Moss currently plies his trade in Australia's A-League with Wellington Phoenix, the club that both Jeremy Brockie and Michael Boxall previously played for before they were signed by Premiership side SuperSport United.

Reaz Moorad, who is Moss' agent and is living in New Zealand, previously worked for Manning Rangers' junior team when Gordon Igesund was in charge of the Rangers side that won the first PSL title in the 1996/97 season.

Now Moorad, who also negotiated the deals of Brockie and Boxall, says there are prospects of Moss coming to South Africa after his compatriots told him of their enjoyment playing in the PSL.

"While I was in KwaZulu-Natal visiting my family, as I'm from there and my parents are still there, I spoke to a coupe of clubs and we've got two clubs who are showing interest in Glenn Moss," Moorad tells KickOff.com from New Zealand.

"He [Moss] is playing for Wellington Phoenix and they are playing in the Australian league and Brockie and Boxall, they were together at the same club.

"Glenn's contract is up as the season in Australia finishes in April so he'll be a free agent. He's stalling with the new contract and they want him to sign a two-year extension but he's stalling because this is his ninth season in the A-League and he wants to get out and experience an overseas league.

"He talks with those two New Zealand players [Brockie and Boxall] because they from the national team and they're good friends and they've said good things about South Africa.

"But one club is very serious and is preparing a pre-contract as we speak for next season and there's one in Johannesburg and one in KwaZulu-Natal that are seriously chasing his signature."

Moss, 34, has featured in 18 of the 19 games Phoenix have played so far this season as they sit eighth on the log.
