Gould tells agent to finalise Kaizer Chiefs deal

The SuperSport United and Bafana Bafana defender looks set to complete a move to the Amakhosi during the course of the week
South Africa defender Morgan Gould has told his agent to go ahead and finalise a deal with Kaizer Chiefs as he prefers to play for the club.

Gould was at the PSL Awards on Sunday night and though the player could not comment, his agent Glyn Binkin revealed all.

"We are finalising a deal with Kaizer Chiefs, because Morgan indicated that he would like to go to Chiefs and that's where we are at the moment. I'm very confident that we are going to finalise in the next couple of days," he said, according to Kickoff.com.

Binkin has admitted that Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are also interested in the player, but Gould prefers a move to Naturena.

"To be honest all the three big clubs are interested, but in my opinion the club that dealt with us in the most professional manner was Kaizer Chiefs. We were directly approached by them and they made it clear they want the player to be part of their squad next season so I sat down with the player to discuss his options and after a couple of days he made it clear that he wants to join Chiefs," Binkin confirmed.

"We are pretty far advanced with the negotiations and the only challenge was to wait for him to play his last match of the season, which he did with aplomb (by helping SuperSport United beat Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup final).

"Now it is clear which team he would like to join and that club is Kaizer Chiefs so now we have to make that a reality," Binkin added.

Gould, who also attended the PSL Awards in Gold Reef City, Johannesburg, offered little when asked about the pending deal which may have been signed and sealed last night in a meeting with Chiefs officials.

"Mentally, I have made my decision and I will be joining Whoever FC but my focus now is on the national team so I can't comment," Gould concluded.

He is part of the Bafana squad to play Ethiopia and Botswana in World Cup qualifiers next month.
