Interest in Bhasera growing in England

[Posted 04 Aug 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Bhasera seen here in action for Plymouth, is on English clubs" wanted list

Onismor Bhasera of English League One side Plymouth Argyle has been on the wanted lists of at least two English Championship clubs, and his club has already rejected an offer from one of the clubs.

The former Kaizer Chiefs star arrived in England before the beginning of the 2009/2010 season with the hope of joining Portsmouth Football Club who had offered him a three year contract. Portsmouth could not proceed with the buying of the player following a transfer embargo imposed upon the club by the English PSL after the club's financial troubles.

Bhasera's intended Portsmouth move was also scuttled by a dispute involving the player, Portsmouth and his former club Chiefs. Amakhosi insisted at the time that Bhasera was their player and demanded compensation, while the player insisted that he was a free agent. Eventually Chiefs and Bhasera resolved their dispute, and the latter joined Plymouth.

Reports from England indicate that Championship side Crystal Palace has tabled an offer for Bhasera which Plymouth has already rejected for unspecified reasons. The Zimbabwean international is also wanted by Queens Park Rangers who attempted without success to acquire the services of the player last season.

Peter Reid, the new Plymouth coach, hopes that he will be able to hold onto his prized asset. Reid shared his views through the club's website about the growing interest in the player and how he intends to keep Bhasera at Home Park.

 "I haven't heard anything from QPR but there has been interest from Palace, which we turned down.

"He's a good player but Manchester United didn't want to sell [Cristiano] Ronaldo. There are certain things you have to do.

"In an ideal world, I wouldn't have sold [Ashley] Barnes but we had to move things around. Everyone's got a price but Bhasera has impressed me with his attitude.

"The pushed-on position suits him. He's got energy and a lovely left-foot to knock crosses in. He is our player and I'm delighted he's our player. I don't get worried about things like this. I see it as a compliment."

But Reid sounds like a worried man and after rejecting Palace's offer, that may only open doors for other interested clubs to offer more for the player. It remains unclear though whether Plymouth rejected the Palace offer because it did not meet their own valuation of the player. The reason could also be that the coach intends to use Bhasera to mount a serious challenge for an immediate return to the Championship.
