Phiri set to leave Guingamp


Lebogang Phiri has opted against renewing his contract at French outfit, EA Guingamp.

The midfielder’s current contract is set to expire at the end of June and he has turned down a new deal as he looks to start a new chapter in his career.

Phiri joined the French club at the start of the 2017/18 season after leaving Danish Superliga side, Brondby IF.

After saving the club from relegation in the 2013/14 campaign, Phiri was inducted into Brondby’s Wall of Fame in 2015 He also made over 100 league appearances for the Danish giants.

In France, the Bafana Bafana star made 78 league appearances in the four seasons he spent with Guingamp.

Before the start of the 2020/21 campaign, the dynamic midfielder had offers from clubs in Spain, Turkey and France’s Ligue 1, but he got a career threatening knee injury which kept him out of action for over six months.

Since making his return from injury at the beginning of April, Phiri only managed to make seven Ligue 2 appearances in the 2020/21 campaign.

It remains to be seen where the Johannesburg-born midfielder will be playing his football next season, but reports have already emerged suggesting that he has suitors in Turkey and France.

This comes a few weeks after Keagan Dolly’s representatives revealed that the former Mamelodi Sundowns winger will not be signing a new deal at Ligue 1 side Montpellier.
