Bernard Parker, who has been with the Glamour Boys since 2011, has scored 33 Absa Premiership goals for the club since his return to South Africa from Europe, and has missed only 33 of Chiefs’ 225 league matches over the past seven and a half campaigns.
The 32-year-old signed his last contract with Chiefs in 2015 when he penned a three-year deal with the Amakhosi, and come January he will be into the last six months of his deal and therefore allowed to open up talks with any other interested parties.
However Mike Makaab, the striker’s representative, says that the player is ‘very happy’ at Naturena, explaining that talks will open up between the involved parties in early 2019.
He told the the media, “Look, Bernard is very happy at Chiefs, and in the new year we’ll sit down with the club to discuss his future at Naturena or we can get him a good club in SA like Pirates, or Cape Town,.”
Parker was instrumental in Chiefs’ success during Stuart Baxter’s time at the club, where he played his role in helping them to two Absa Premiership titles, a Nedbank Cup win and the MTN8 trophy.
