The New Zealand international was confirmed as a new United signing in May, yet problems with the issuing of his work permit has delayed his arrival in the country.

The 26-year-old admits it has been an annoying last few weeks, yet reveals his wait should be nearly over.

“Yes, it has been very frustrating!” he tells “I am sorting out [the issue] today, and I should be there in South Africa in the next couple of days.”

The former Wellington Phoenix defender added that he will be travelling with the Matsatsantsa squad to Cape Town ahead of this weekend’s Cape Town Cup.
