Lamontville Golden Arrows and Bafana Bafana star midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi will have to wait a little longer to fulfill his objective of playing in England.

The gifted midfielder failed to meet the criteria to secure a work permit to sign for English Premiership club Fulham during the January transfer window.

Foreign players can only get a work permit if they have played for their country in at least 75 percent of its competitive A team matches in the two years before the date of the application.

They should also have been available for selection during the the two-year period and the country must be ranked no lower than 70th in the official Fifa world rankings when averaged over that time.

"Kagisho's move to Britain was made impossible because of these requirements but we are hopeful he will meet them in future," said Francesco Ferreira of Prosport International, the company that manages Dikgacoi and a horde of other players.

"We hope he will be provided with game time at Bafana Bafana in the future. We are also encouraged that there is a Confederations Cup coming and this will augment his chances of meeting the requirement to play in Britain, if he is selected for the matches."

Dikgacoi could not be reached for comment yesterday.
