Tshabalala: Forest keen on bafana winger

2011-07-08 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — Siphiwe Tshabalala’s manager is working to secure a deal for the Bafana Bafana player at Nottingham Forest, reports the Sowetan.

Following the arrival of new manager Steve McClaren at Nottingham Forest, the English Championship club have renewed their bid to sign winger Siphiwe Tshabalala. It is believed that former England manager McClaren is keen to bring Tshabalala on board. It will not be the first time that the gifted Tshabalala goes to West Bridgford. He attended trials at Forest in August last year, while they were under manager Billy Davies.

Davies was fired on June 13.

Tshabalala’s business manager Jazzman Mahlakgane said, “I can confirm that there are people who want Tshabalala to join their club in Europe in the new season, but we are still awaiting an official letter to that effect from them.”
