Burkina Faso keeper Daouda Diakite still in South Africa following Free State Stars exit


Diakite's contract with Stars was mutually terminated on the same day the club parted ways with his countryman Robert Sankara – who has since joined Bloemfontein Celtic.

The 33-year-old spent two years with Ea Lla Koto after joining the side when Tom Saintfiet had just taken over.

“Diakite will be still in the country until he leaves for national team duty as he has already received an invitation to join camp. He is available for now as there was a mutual agreement to go separate ways at Stars. We are just waiting for offers for now as he is still keen to remain in South Africa though if that fails we will pursue other options,” says Diakite's representative Michel Sinha.

Burkina Faso will host Botswana on September 3 in a Group D 2017 AFCON qualifier.
