Tottenham cut-price option for £30m right-back


first_imgTottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, has reportedly stepped up his interest in signing Leicester right-back Ricardo Pereira in the January transfer window. But Pereira is not the only right-back on Tottenham’s radar, and news from West Brom is sure to have alerted the north London club. That news concerns highly-rated Baggies full-back Nathan Ferguson, who up until recently had been a regular in Slaven Bilic’s side, but has missed the last two games. Read Also:Tottenham leading transfer race for West Brom star The official line from The Hawthorns is that the 19-year-old is currently sidelined with a minor knock, but rumours persist that West Brom may be ready to do a deal for a player who will be out of contract in the summer and could be sold for as little as £10m. Meanwhile, Tottenham defensive stalwart Jan Vertonghen is reportedly wanted by two clubs in the January transfer window. According to the Daily Telegraph, Serie A outfit Napoli want to move for the 32-year-old this month – having failed with an approach last summer.

The 26-year-old only joined Leicester in 2018 in a £21million deal from Porto and was awarded the club’s Player of the Season in his first year at the club. The Daily Express claims that Mourinho is ready to rival United for Pereira, who is under contract at the King Power until 2023, and that Spurs are readying a £30m offer for the player’s services. Pereira is under contract at Leicester until 2023 and any club will find it difficult to convince the Foxes to part with one of their best players mid-way through the season. Spurs are chasing two new full-backs as Mourinho looks to rebuild a defence that has struggled to keep clean-sheets this season, with current right-back Serge Aurier prone to major errors – particularly in big games.last_img read more

Classic South African action film returns to the big screen

(Image: Retro Afrika Bioscope webpage)CD AndersonJoe Bullet has made an appearance back on the big screen. The South African action film, made in 1971 had a limited re-release in Johannesburg and Cape Town this past January, with more showings planned for the rest of the year.The film is the story of a local soccer team caught in the web of the criminal underworld. It features a strong black South African action hero, something almost unheard-of in the South African film industry during apartheid. It had an all-black cast, including singer Abigail Kubeka and Ken Gampu as Joe Bullet.A digitally restored Joe Bullet has recently been shown at The Bioscope Independent Cinema in Johannesburg and in The Company’s Garden in Cape Town. It was restored by Gravel Road Distribution, supervised by the film’s original producer, Tonie van der Merwe.The showings proved to be a great success, with more screenings planned across South Africa for the rest of the year, as well as a possible DVD and digital release available soon, the company says.Originally banned by the apartheid government, and then later unbanned but never released commercially, Joe Bullet has a very South African feel and setting.Local filmmakers Van der Merwe and Louis de Witt specialised in making films for black South African audiences. The company’s aim was to tell South African stories using film, and developing black South African actors and technical expertise at a time when most film production was dominated by white South Africans.The producers made more than 400 films, quickly and cheaply, specialising in human drama stories and action films that did not upset the government too much. The films proved popular among black audiences eager to see stories and characters that they could identify with.However, due to the positive portrayal of a black hero in Joe Bullet, the film was their most controversial film. Apartheid government censors cut short the film’s potential to entertain the masses.Van der Merwe received an African Movie Academy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 for his contribution to the South African film industry, and helping launch the careers of many of the country’s prominent black actors and crew workers, all in the face of apartheid government interference.Joe Bullet himself, Gampu, went on to act in local films and television series. He also had an impressive international film career during the 1980s, starring alongside some of Hollywood’s best, including Sharon Stone (in King Solomon’s Mines), Richard Burton and Roger Moore (in The Wild Geese). Gampu also starred in one of South Africa’s most popular cinematic exports, The Gods Must Be Crazy. He died in 2003.African films from the 1970s and 80s have enjoyed a recent renaissance among local film fans. Previously unavailable films have been released on DVD, while some of the era’s best films have been broadcast on the DStv Mzansi Bioskop channel (164).Watch the Joe Bullet trailer belowVisit the Joe Bullet Facebook page for more information on future screenings in Johannesburg and Cape Town.For more information on iconic South African films from the last 50 years, visit the Retro Afrika Bioscope website.Source: Channel24 Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgBrand South Africa continues to leverage off the potentially positive role that can be played by South African diaspora through its Global South Africans (GSA) initiative. Through targeted engagements with Global South Africans, Brand South Africa has enlisted the talent, experience and credibility of South Africans in the diaspora and strengthened its network of citizens living and working abroad. Over the month of June, we reached out to GSAs in Paris, London and Washington DC, with the aim of encouraging social cohesion and nation brand advocacy among our fellow compatriots.GSA Activation “BRAAI and BAT”, ParisDuring a recent investment roadshow to Europe, Brand South Africa reached out to GSA’s based in France and established relations with South Africans in Paris (SAiP) who have spearheaded the establishment of Le Kraal Isibaya (LEKA), a French registered association based in Paris with the aim of addressing the South African community’s social needs and promoting projects within France. As part of Brand South Africa’s efforts to ensure continuity of engagements with GSAs globally, the organisation partnered with Le Kraal to host a GSA Activation “BRAAI and BAT” during Youth Month. This activation served to strengthen relations with GSAs as it enabled Brand South Africa to reach out to the broader GSA community based in Paris and surrounds thanks to the partnership with Le Kraal.                     South African Youth Day Celebrations, LondonIn the United Kingdom, Brand South Africa partnered with Kasiluv Entertainment to host the South African Youth Day Celebrations in London. This year’s celebrations were intended to mark not only Youth Day, but to also recognise and celebrate 25 years of South Africa’s democracy. The activation attracted families from across the country, and served to strengthen the identity and sense of belonging of the South African community living in the UK.                   GSA Network “Play Your Part” Event, Washington DCSouth Africans living and working in the Beltway Region of the USA were invited to attend a GSA network “Play Your Part” event in Washington DC in partnership with Embassy of South Africa. The theme for this event was guided not only by the key messages emanating from President Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation address, but was also driven by Brand South Arica’s mandate to communicate positive stories by tapping into South Africans in the diaspora as brand ambassadors. GSAs from Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia came to the event, and it is hoped that such events will continue to bring together Global South Africans of all races, gender and creed.last_img read more
