South Africa's Dikgacoi unhappy at Fulham role

The agent of South African Kagisho Dikgacoi says he is planning showdown talks with Fulham manager Mark Hughes.

The midfielder, 25, has seen just four minutes of action since Hughes' arrival at the club in the summer.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, his agent Mike Makaab, says the player has no option but to move on.

"We will engage Fulham over the next few days and talk to them about the future," he told BBC Sport.

"I've always been straight and honest with my clients so we will have to approach them and admit the situation - KG needs to play games," he said.

Dikgacoi's two-year contract expires in June, meaning he is now free to discuss terms with other clubs in Europe.

According to his agent, teams in France and Germany have already shown an interest.

"If it's not going to be at Fulham then it needs to be somewhere else."

"Ideally we can get something sorted in the January window but if that can't happen then at the end of the season," he stated.

Dikgacoi was part of South Africa's squad at the World Cup which the country hosted and provided the pass for team-mate Siphiwe Tshabalala's opening goal at the tournament.

He played 17 games under former coach Roy Hodgson last season.

Dikgacoi joined The Cottagers in August 2009 after impressing Hodgson at a trial.

He picked up a knee injury in pre-season and has failed to force his way back into the team even with Fulham struggling in the league.
