Former Platinum Stars and Cape Town City winger Gift Links believes he is ready for a big move to the German Bundesliga or French Ligue 1.
The 21-year-old is currently plying his trade in Denmark after securing a move to Aarhus GF from the Citizens in September 2019.
However, Links’ development at the club stalled after the coronavirus pandemic caused the suspension of football on a global scale.
The Bafana Bafana wing explained that the Danish government has slowly lifted Covid-19 restrictions and the Superliga clubs have since resumed training.
‘Everything is opening up slowly … restaurants and coffee shops they will be opening,’ Links told the South African Football Journalists Association (Safja).
‘So, yeah, and regarding football. It’s good because we started training as a team last week. We have been training for a week now, together. And, yeah, we are in good shape.’
The former Pyramids FC winger is hoping to move to a bigger club in Europe after establishing himself in the Superliga with Aarhus GF.
‘You know, there’s one thing about football I can say like, now OK, I want to settle and all this stuff,’ he continued.
‘But next season then I have an amazing season, you know, having a good, good season, then offers come.
‘Then they say Gift, maybe some teams from France or Bundesliga or anywhere around top leagues, and they say, Gift, they want you.
‘I can’t say no, if my club is going to say OK, we accept … they accept the offer. You know what I’m saying?
‘You know, and I know I’m only 21 but I’ve played for many teams … this is my fourth professional team. So, hopefully, in Denmark, I will stay a bit longer, maybe two, three, four years, then we’ll see what happens after that.’
