'KG' agent looking for loan move


The former Golden Arrows captain was an unused substitute in his club’s 4-0 win over Spurs in the FA Cup on Sunday, but has only played four minutes this season under Mark Hughes.

And with the Football League’s window for loaning players due to open again next week, Mike Makaab is hoping to persuade the Fulham boss to allow the 25-year-old midfielder to leave Craven Cottage.

“We have to wait for the loan window to open now, so I’m due to speak to Fulham in the next two or three days to find out their intentions,” he tells KickOff.com.

“KG was on the bench against Spurs the other day, but with [Dickson] Etuhu almost back from injury, a loan would be the best thing for him now.”

Dikgacoi has been warned by Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane that he needs game-time to keep his spot in the national team and Makaab admitted there has been no shortage of enquiries about him, including Londoners QPR and Crystal Palace.

“There are a number of clubs in the Championship who have shown an interest. QPR have moved on to other targets now because it all took too long but I know that Crystal Palace would take KG tomorrow if Fulham will let him go,” he says.

“I think he would do a fantastic job there as he is an experienced player who is desperate to get on the pitch. The national team coach has come out and said if he doesn’t get game-time soon then he won’t be part of his plans. Therefore we have to get him playing somewhere and I will be doing everything in my power to ensure he gets that.”

Palace officials refused to confirm they were interested in signing Dikgacoi, but new manager Dougie Freedman is looking for experienced players to boost his team’s bid for Championship survival.
