Shabba begins trials at Palace

Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs star Simphiwe Tshabalala started his 10 day trial period at the Coca-cola English Championship side Crystal Palace on Thursday.

Having arrived in England during midweek, Shabba joined the rest of the Palace first team players for a light work-out at their training ground and the club has confirmed that the trial period for the South African has indeed begun.

  “We’ve spoken to Dougie this morning and he said he’s going to have a look at him over the next 10 days,” a spokesperson has said.

At Palace Shabba will be in familiar company in the form of Kagisho Dikgacoi who is a regular at the club. The South African midfielder is convinced that his national team midfield counterpart will make the grade in England.

Tshabalala has what it takes to play in this League – even in the Premiership,” Dikgacoi told recently.

“He is an experienced international player, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up signing. It would be great to have another South African at the club, so I hope he does well.”

Shabba has been at Nottingham Forest on trial before and he did not seem to have made the grade, but has attracted interest from another Championship side Millwall also in the past, and that Glasgow Rangers of Scotland.

Chiefs are eager to at least get something out of a possible deal with Palace this January. If Shabba is to move after June, then he might as well go on a free since he will be out of contract then, having stalled on extending his contract with Chiefs beyond June.
