Former Ajax Cape Town captain Bradley August could still remain in South Africa despite recent speculation linking him with a move overseas.
August was training with Moroka Swallows a couple of weeks ago but nothing came of the proposed move despite the club's interest in the star striker.
"I trained with Swallows for about four days but it didn't work out because they had enough strikers," he revealed exclusively to SASoccer365.
The player insists that coach Gavin Hunt was keen to complete a deal but there were logistical difficulties in the way.
"Gavin really wanted to sign me, but the problem was with the finances," he added.
August played as a defender for much of his time at Ajax but he is adamant that he wants to revert to his preferred striking role.
"I did play at the back, but I want to play upfront, wherever I go," he declared.
The Capetonian has been linked with a move back to Denmark, where he once plied his trade with FC Lyngby, but he insisted that he didn't know where such rumours emanated from.
Nevertheless the burly hitman admitted that he could still move overseas once more if an opportunity presents itself but it all depends on his circumstances.
