Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi admits there are possibilities of him moving abroad and that he would like to finish his career in Europe.

The Nigerian has shone for Chiefs this season, ousting Itumeleng Khuneas the No 1 under Ernst Middendorp.

The 33-year-old has subsequently attracted interest from clubs in Belgium, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, as recently confirmed by his agent, Mohamed Lawal.

With Chiefs goalkeeping department now stacked, the Nigerian has admitted that he would be open to a move overseas.

‘Well, the dream of every player, or let me just say the dream of some African players, is to actually play in Europe, where football was invented,’ Akpeyi told National Daily as quoted by Punch.

‘So, if I have the opportunity, yes I will, when the opportunity comes, why not? I would like to finish my career in Europe.

‘There are possibilities that it can happen and I look forward to it,’ he said.

Akpeyi also opened up on the competition for places at Chiefs, which he believes has pushed him to become better.

‘Frankly speaking, it has been a hell of a competition between us in the goalkeeping department because a lot of us have a lot to offer but most especially with the experience of Itumeleng Khune in the team, being a hero, being a legend, we actually learn from him every day to become better,’ he added.

‘It has really been positive energy from that department. So, that is why we can say for now that the department is strong and we are more like brothers in that department because we support each other whenever anyone gets the nod to play,’ concluded Akpeyi.
