Keet wants overseas move

Premiership

Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Darren Keet is not planning to play in the Absa Premiership next season after his contract comes to an end.

Speaking after their 1-0 victory against Golden Arrows at Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday, an irritated Keet, who has been linked with Kaizer Chiefs, said he is not planning on playing for a different side in the PSL.

"Definitely not playing in a different team in South Africa, my focus is on Europe," he said.

There was a time this season when Keet was not playing, and he said being on the sidelines did not affect him as a player.

"It didn't affect me because my focus is on doing my job, I was training normally like I'm going to get into the starting line-up, I'm always professional," he said.

Wits coach Gavin Hunt made it clear that he does not know what will happen to Keet.

"I don't know, thought you will know. Nothing has happened, he has not signed an extension with us, his contract ends in a few weeks so we don't know," he added.

Keet is confident South Africa will do well at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt and says he will not be using using the tournament to win a move abroad.

"We have to see who makes it to the team. Of course we want to make the country proud, we had a good qualification and we need to build up from that. Our opening game will be key to win so we can finish in the top two in our group," he said.

"I'm not going to use the tournament to advertise myself, it's all about Bafana Bafana. We need to make the country proud."
