Siyanda Xulu, who has already been invited by English Premiership side Arsenal as well as Spanish giants Barcelona where he had trials, has now attracted interest from Atletico Madrid who are keen to have a look at him next season.
A KickOff.com source has been informed that the club will definitely allow the defender to go at the end of the season and will not stand in his way, like they did with striker Katlego Mphela.
Downs spokesperson Alex Shakoane says they will only confirm when everything is in place, but at the moment he would not say anything.
"I can't confirm speculation; I can only confirm once everything is done and at the moment there is nothing," he said.
Fenerbahce defender Joseph Yobo admits he is keeping his options open to staying in Turkey once his loan deal from Everton expires.
The 30-year-old Nigerian defender who has played 22 games this season insists his priority is to end the season on a high, with the club tied on 60 points with Trabzonspor at the top of the Super Lig table.
"I want to do my best until the end of the season, and then I will talk about transfers. The priority is to do my best here, as for the future I will keep options open," he told NTVSpor.
On the forthcoming fixture against third-place Buraspor, the stopper said: "We have to take each match as it comes and the game against Buraspor will be extremely tough.
"But, we are strong and in form and I hope we can remain top."
Goalkeeper William Amamoo says he is still hopeful he will be recalled to the Black Stars despite his long wait on the sidelines.
The Hapoel Petah Tikva doorman assured Goal.com he harbours no qualms with any official of the west African FA and still believes the right time will come despite Ghana’s current interest to woo Norwegian-born Ghanaian goal tender Adam Kwarasey on their side.
“Adam is a young and a talented goalkeeper and I think the FA should give him a chance to justify himself,” Amamoo said to Goal.com.
“There is no harm in trying, I know and surely know that my time will come again soon. Who thought that Richard Kingson will ever be back in the national team and seize the number one shirt for this long after he was forgotten or axed from the national team some few years earlier?”
Peter Osaze Odemwingie
Nigeria striker Osaze Odemwingie has taken to his Twitter page to accuse coach Samson Siasia of having "issues".
Odemwingie is believed to be upset that his attitude was questioned after he opted not to play in the Super Eagles' friendly against Kenya on Tuesday.
After playing in Sunday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia, he flew back to England on Monday.
Odemwingie implied in his Twitter rant that that he opted out of the Kenya friendly because of injury.
Leone Stars head coach Lars Olof Mattsson has for the first time reacted to his team's defeat at the hands of Niger in a 2012 African Cup of Nations Group G qualifying match in Niamey last Sunday by taken full responsibility for the loss.
The team conceded three goals within 25 minutes in the second half to lose 3-1 after they had taken the lead in the first half through Sweden-based Mohamed Bangaura alias Poborsky.
"I take full responsibility for the Leone Stars defeat because I'm the head coach," said Coach Mattsson, adding that "I'm disappointed and feel sorry for the players."
Wolves midfielder Adlene Guedioura has made a successful start to his comeback six months after breaking his leg.
The Algeria international played the full 90 minutes for the reserve team at Blackpool, scoring in their 2-1 win.
It was the 25-year-old's first action since he suffered the injury against Aston Villa in September.
Wolved manager Mick McCarthy indicated that Guedioura would be ready to join their battle for Premier League survival if he came through unscathed.
As the hour mark approached in Kenya’s CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola last weekend, the match and the campaign seemed to be slipping away from the Harambee Stars. But, down a goal and realistically in need of all three points to move back into Group J contention, the east Africans confirmed their determination and their promise by equalising through Jamal Mohammed and finally claiming a winner in the dying minutes.
Long after the final whistle, Kenyans inside and out Nyayo Nairobi Stadium wildly celebrated MacDonald Mariga’s screamer of a shot that settled the match 2-1 for the hosts. All over the country, poverty-stricken residents had trekked to watch the contest in shopping malls or restaurants, and they were rewarded with a true moment to savour - one that points to bigger possibilities for a country hungry for success.
