Akpeyi's Sekhukhune move hits snag


KickOff has been informed that Daniel Akpeyi's proposed move to Sekhukhune United has hit a stumbling block with Babina Noko preferring another vastly experienced goalkeeper.

Sekhukhune have been in the hunt for another goalkeeper following the release of veteran goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini along with Ayanda Dlamini leaving them with only Toaster Nsabata to call for in the experience ranks.

The club also have Rowen van Vuuren who is yet to be tested in the PSL.

Word reaching this website is that Sekhukhune has since settled for Ivorian keeper Badra Ali Sangare.

Sangare (36) is set to join the club from JDR Stars in the GladAfrica Championship where he has been playing for the past two years.

He was initially engaged prior to leaving for national team duty last month.  

Though he has spent the past three years playing second-tier league football in South Africa he has been able to remain in the Ivory Coast national team.

This year he has played every minute of all eight games for The Elephants including all four at the AFCON finals and the two friendly matches against France and England in March.

Sangare has been to four AFCON tournaments and first played for Free State Stars upon his arrival in the country in 2017.

The latest developments have scuppered Akpeyi’s proposed move to Sekhukhune.

Akpeyi’s demands of a six-figure salary and signing-on fee put off his proposed move following his release by Kaizer Chiefs.
