Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala (33) is well on his way to realising his dream of playing in Europe.

The winger has been with the Soweto giants for over a decade since signing from Free State Stars and was reportedly close to a move abroad, following his exploits in the 2010 FIFA wworld cup.

“Principle agreement reached the official signature of the experienced footballer will take place two days after he travels to Erzurum (translated from Turkish),” the club said.

“Siphiwe Tshabalala is a position number 10 midfielder, will sign a 2-year deal.”

Erzurumspor is a relatively new club, as they were only founded 13 years ago in 2005.
