Bafana Bafana striker Bradley Grobler has broken his silence on recent reports linking him with a move to Kaizer Chiefs.
According to speculation, Amakhosi were considering the SuperSport United forward either as a replacement for Samir Nurkovic in the event that the Serbian left the club or as an addition to their strikeforce.
Nurkovic is believed to be on the shopping list of Egyptian giants Al Ahly as well as wealthy clubs in the Gulf region.
But according to sources, Chiefs did not see Grobler as Nurkovic’s replacement but rather as somebody who could lead their attack while the Serbian is still recovering from groin surgery.
Grobler admits he heard the rumours of him moving to Naturena but reveals everything quickly died down following the club’s failure to overturn their FIFA transfer ban.
“I heard about it, I don’t know how far it got,” Grobler tells KickOff.com.
“To be honest I didn’t get involved so much, I just heard about it. I heard about it from a few different people. But it was very close to that time that the announcement [of the appeal failure] was made. It was literally a day before that.
“I heard about it from a few different football people. But yeah it was very close to that time the announcement was made so it kind of died down very quickly. Ja, before it could really get going or anything like that. So it didn’t really go much from there.
“So I’m not really sure of any details from their side. As I said I heard about it and very quickly it was done. Before I even thought about it, it was over.”
