Nodada has his heart set on Europe

Cape Town City's Thabo Nodada says he would consider a move to Kaizer Chiefs if he were unable to secure a contract in Europe.

The former Mpumalanga Black Aces midfielder is a reported target for Amakhosi in the upcoming transfer window.

The 25-year-old had been in fine form for City ahead of the enforced break, having worked back from a leg fracture he sustained last season.

And while Nodada has his heart set on a move overseas, speaking to KickOff, he explained: "For that [joining Chiefs] to even be considered, I'd have to be 100 per cent sure Europe is not happening.

"Upon then will I be able to make a decision."

Nodada added that the injury he suffered last season made him a stronger and more determined player.

"I lost a lot of muscle during the injury, so much it felt like a complete rebuild. I got a better understanding of my body, and how each body contributes to how I play.

"All setbacks in pre-season led to greater comebacks in the league. Goals, assists. My mental toughness was questioned throughout. Mostly by me."

Nodada admitted though that the quality at Cape Town City has allowed him to perform so well this season.

"It's also credit to the quality of players I've been privileged to play with," he said. Cape Town City has been ambitious enough to bring in foreign internationals and a South African in Europe.

"These additions have always kept me on my toes. My personal goals and targets have also not allowed me to skip a day."
