KEET EYES OVER­SEAS SWITCH

Soccer Laduma - - News -

Bid­vest Wits’ Bafana Bafana in­ter­na­tional, Dar­ren Keet, could well be on his way out of the club at the end of the sea­son as he eyes a move over­seas when his cur­rent deal ex­pires.

Ac­cord­ing to Siya sources, the 29- year- old shot- stop­per is cur­rently as­sess­ing op­tions in both Europe and the United States of Amer­ica as he en­ters into the last six months of his con­tract with the Clever Boys, with a pos­si­ble re­turn to Bel­gium on the cards.

Bel­gian gi­ants Club Brugge showed an in­ter­est in Keet prior to his re­turn to the Premier Soc­cer League in 2016, while Ma­jor Soc­cer League out­fit Min­nesota United are also known to have been keep­ing tabs on him in the past as they con­sid­ered a swoop for his sig­na­ture.

Keet has im­pressed in South Af- rica since com­ing back home from KV Kor­trijk, win­ning the Absa Pre­mier­ship ti­tle, the MTN8 and the Telkom Knockout as well as pick­ing up an award for Goal­keeper of the Sea­son in 2017.

Now, hav­ing won ev­ery do­mes­tic tro­phy avail­able in South Africa – he won the Ned­bank Cup in 2010 with Wits – it ap­pears that the Bafana man has am­bi­tions of head­ing out­side the coun­try once more.

The Siya crew has been in­formed that, as things stand, Keet will not be sign­ing a new deal at Wits. While his next des­ti­na­tion re­mains un­known at this point in time, he will be ea­ger to make sure that his stan­dards don’t slip as he looks to main­tain his place as the goal­keeper with the most clean sheets in the league (8).
