Bernard Parker is said to be heading out of Kaizer Chiefs for good during the anticipating January Transfer Window in 2019.
According to report emanating from Soweto, Kaizer Chiefs are ready to cement a deal with their Soweto rival Orlando Pirates to have their attacker Bernard park join Pirates in January.
Meanwhile, it has earlier been reported that Kaizer Chiefs new coach Ernst Middendorp is said to have excluded Bernard Parker from his squad future squad as he is set to revive and re position the club after the January window transfer, and that has made the player to seek for an exit point to Pirates.
However, A source close to Orlando Pirates stated that Parker would likely join Orlando Pirates in January stating that negotiations are on going on the the price tag being giving by Chiefs on the player.
Parker made his debut in the professional ranks for Cape Town’s Hellenic FC, later bought and renamed Benoni Premier United. After the club was once again renamed and moved to Durban he remained with Thanda Royal Zulu F.C. until early 2009 when he obtained a transfer to European Cup Winners Red Star in Serbia. His stay in Belgrade was cut short after reports that the club had cash flow problems and owed its players’ salaries. He consequentially signed with FC Twente in July 2009 and was a member of the team that won the Dutch 2009–10 Eredivisie. After Twente Manager Steve Mclaren’s move to the German Bundesliga, Parker failed to convince new coach Michel Preud’homme of his qualities and thus spent the first half of the 2010/11 Dutch season mostly on the bench. He joined Leicester City on trial in December 2010 with a view to a permanent move away from the Dutch club. On 18 January 2011 he moved to Panserraikos F.C. on loan, to secure extra game time and returned to FC Twente after the end of the 2010/11 Greek season. After receiving interest from Swedish clubs Malmö FF and Helsingborgs IF as well as South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs, Parker chose the latter ahead of the other clubs. In the 2012/13 season, Parker scored 12 league goals in 28 matches and finished as runner up to Katlego Mashego who had 13 and helped Chiefs to a league and cup double. The following season, he won the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot with 10 goals.
