Bafana star could seal move to Europe


Bafana Bafana star Bongokuhle Hlongwane could potentially seal a lucrative deal abroad with reported interest from European teams.

Hlongwane produced some outstanding performances where he proved the match-winner in a 1-0 win over Ghana in a 2022 World Cup qualifier.

An unnamed German team is believed to be keeping tabs on the striker and have already sounded out Maritzburg United coach Ernst Middendorp.

"There were two offers from both Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates during the past window period, but the club [Maritzburg United] turned it down because they want to sell the player to Europe, said the source.

"There is a German club that has shown interest, and they are following the player through coach Ernst Middendorp who has put in a good word for him," the source added.

Hlongwane so far has registered two goals on the international stage after also scoring during an international friendly against Uganda earlier this year.
