Blues to run the rule over South Africa skipper at Crawley

Town have included South Africa skipper Bongani Khumalo in the squad for tonight’s friendly at Crawley. 

The 26-year-old Tottenham defender has trained with Blues this week and the White Hart Lane club have given him permission to play at Broadfield Stadium. 

Khumalo played for Arcadia Shepherds and University of Pretoria before joining leading South Africa club Supersport United. 

He represented his country at the 2010 World Cup, held in his homeland and scored in their 2-1 win over France in the group stage. 

A year later he signed for Tottenham but has yet to make an appearance for the first-team. 

After loan spells at Preston and Reading, he spent last season at PAOK in Greece before returning to White Hart Lane.

Also included in the Town squad for tonight’s game are Dan Seaborne and Dean Gerken. 

The duo are available as free agents after being released by Southampton and Bristol City respectively and featured for Town in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Shelbourne. 

Kick-off at the Broadfield Stadium is 7.45pm.
