Will Daniel Akpeyi be playing Uefa Champions League Football?

According to reports in the South African media, a Belgian club has shown interest in signing Super Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi from Kaizer Chiefs.

It is claimed that a financial offer is being packaged which will be impossible for Kaizer Chiefs to reject. “It’s a tempting offer. I don’t know if it has got to the club yet, but it might convince them to let him go." someone close to the matter said.

"I believe it is in the region of £1.8 million and that should be enough to sway their management,” the source concluded.

Although Akpeyi has had a bittersweet stay at Amakhosi where he has become the first choice ahead of Itumeleng Khune, he has nonetheless delivered for breathtakingly beautiful performances recently which have won him a number of individual awards.

But some Amakhosi wider stakeholders still prefer Khune thus, whenever Akpeyi makes the minor mistakes he has come to be known for, they land criticisms on to him like a ton of bricks.

Should his move to the mystery Belgium club materialises, then he will find himself in a league playing for Champions League qualification.
