“Siphiwe Tshabalala is a position number 10 midfielder, will sign a 2-year deal (translated from Turkish).”

Tshabalala was linked with a move to Europe after his good displays for Bafana Bafana during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but that move failed to materialise.

Nearly eight years later, Shabba, as Tshabalala is affectionately known in football circles, will finally see his European dream come true.
