The 24-year-old winger, who is a product of the renowned Stars of Africa Football Academy and has previously turned out for teams in Portugal and Sweden in his career, is on the radar of overseas clubs although a possibility of a PSL move is not being ruled out.     

“There’s interest in the player from different clubs in South Africa and overseas. There’s a possibility that he may even go to Portugal in his next move,” a source told the Siya crew.

Contacted for comment, Maraisane confirmed interest in him from the Buccaneers and the Citizens.

“I can’t rule out a possibility of a return to South Africa, as I previously had offers from Cape Town City and Pirates. That was last year,” said Maraisane.

“But, at the time, I had already signed a contract in Turkey. The two clubs had been in contact with my agent,” he added.

“Sometimes being away from your family can be difficult. I may consider coming back home in the future,” confirmed the former SA U20 star.

“Before coming here, I had an injury, which kept me out for about a year - recovering at home in South Africa. After I recovered, I came here and I was with the team for about a month-and-a-half on trial. I later signed with the team. I was on the bench for a few games initially, after signing with the team, but now I am one of the regulars in the team,” he said.

“But it was not easy, and coming from a foreign country, I found things different at the club. There were times I was playing and not playing, and I was asking myself, ‘What am I doing wrong?’ But the coach was encouraging me to say, ‘It’s part of the process, you can’t just come and expect to play regularly.’ I am now one of the starting players for the team,” concluded Maraisane.

As reported, City recently signed 19-year-old defender Keith Groeneveld, who returned to his country of birth after a spell with Belgian Pro League outfit Standard Liege, while Bucs are expected to begin with the process of reshuffling their squad at the end of the season.
