thumbnail Hello,

The Championship outfit is reportedly ready sit down with Tottenham Hotspur and offer Khumalo a contract

Bongani Khumalo has been training with the Championship side for a while now, and he is believed to have impressed Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy.

Khumalo’s agent Glyn Binkin is optimistic that the defender will sign for Ipswich and the deal is expected to be finalized before the end of this week.

Ipswich are reportedly ready to enter into negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur to allow them to take Khumalo on loan, as he still has a running contract with the London-based club until 2015.

The 26-year-old defender was signed by Spurs from SuperSport United back in 2011, but he found it difficult to break into the starting line-up.

He was subsequently loaned out to Preston North End where he only made six appearances before spending the 2011/2012 season at Reading.

Khumalo returned to White Hart Lane at the end of that season, but he was again sent out on loan to PAOK in Greece where he made 22 appearances during the 2012/2013 season.

The former Matsatsantsa central defender captained Bafana during the 2013 Afcon in South Africa, but his lack of game time after the tournament cost him a place in the Bafana squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
