Keet terminates contract in Belgium

Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Darren Keet has had his contract with Belgian side OH Leuven terminated by mutual agreement.

Former Bidvest Wits shot-stopper Keet has become a free agent after Jupiler Pro League outfit Leuven announced the termination of his contract on Thursday afternoon.

The decision comes just over a year after the 31-year-old joined the side from now-defunct Wits, and stems from the Belgian side's acquisition of goalkeepers Daniel Iversen and Rafael Romo earlier in the campaign.

"OH Leuven and Darren Keet have decided in mutual consultation to terminate the South African's current contract," Leuven said in an official statement.

"The club and player came to the decision that there is no future for Keet at Den Dreef, after the arrival of Iversen and Romo

"The South African international arrived in Leuven at the end of July last year and played in 10 league games for OH Leuven. In this time, he kept three clean sheets.

"The club would like to thank Keet for his efforts and dedication, and wish him every success in his further career."

Keet, who has been called up to the Bafana Bafana squad for next month's 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sao Tome and Principe, will now be on the lookout for a new club.
