Spurs, Supersport agree fee over Khumalo

[Posted 24 Sep 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Bongani Khumalo is set to finalise his move to England with Spurs soon

English Barclays Premier League side Tottenham Hotspurs and South African champions Supersport United have reportedly agreed on a transfer fee for one of the hottest defenders in South African soccer at the moment, Bongani Khumalo.

Young defender Khumalo, who captains champions Supersport United, scored Bafana Bafana's second goal against France in South Africa's World Cup finals group match.

The 23-year old has been a consistent performer in the local PSL for the past two seasons, and together with another Bafana international Morgan Gould, they have formed the best central defence pairing in the country.

A source close to Supersport United has revealed that the South African club and the English club have agreed on a R17 million transfer fee for Khumalo to move to White Hart Lane in January 2011.

"Tottenham has requested that Khumalo be allowed to train with them again when the SuperSport United fixture calendar allows him to travel to England.
 
"SuperSport's next game in on October 16 and that is why they allowed him to take the trip to England today," the source said.

Khumalo apparently left the country yesterday in the company of his agent Glyn Binkin. The Supersport captain is expected to discuss personal terms with the English topflight club.

The arrangement between the two clubs is that Khumalo will go to train with his new club Spurs when Supersport's schedule permits him to do so. The PSL champions' next league match will be in mid October, hence Khumalo has been allowed to travel to England.

This is not the first time that the player has travelled to England. Khumalo went for trials with Spurs before the World Cup, and there was media speculation at the time, that Spurs would sign the young defender before the commencement of the current English football season.

News of Khumalo's transfer to England will come as a huge relief to Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane who badly needs defenders with European soccer experience to boost his chances of doing well in the current AFCON qualifiers and 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Khumalo is an examplery soccer player with impeccable leadership qualities. He is touted as a future Bafana Bafana captain after Aaron Mokoena retires from international soccer.
