thumbnail Hello,

Kaiser Chiefs star performed well for the tournament hosts

South Africa midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala hopes that he can make the switch to Europe after impressing at the World Cup.

The 25-year-old, whose fantastic strike against Mexico was the first goal of the World Cup, has been with South African club Kaiser Chiefs for three years but is currently a free agent.

The winger is hopeful that he can now make the move to Europe, with Wigan Athletic, Hannover and Paris St Germain all said to be interested in Tshabalala.

"I am a free agent so it is normal people being interested in me,” Tshabalala told Sky Sports.

"I think I have had a decent World Cup despite losing in the first round. The Kaiser Chiefs have been great to me but I want to play in Europe, so let's wait and see."

Tshabalala could be an option for Wigan to replace Charles N’Zogbia, who is being targeted by some of the Premier League’s elite clubs this summer.
