“My thoughts was that we can’t afford to buy him outright. A loan move at a well-known club in Europe with the potential to then fight for promotion back to the topflight may suit Orlando Pirates to let him be in the shop window.” Helsingborgs IF coach Stuart Baxter told SABC SPORT.

“To be fair I think they considered it. When he scores for Bafana it makes it tough for Pirates when he is a national team player. I think he was he was also ready for a challenge.

“It would have been good, but it became difficult. He’s got a lot of quality and can develop and grow in Sweden – he is good with link up play and knows where to find the space.

“Hugo sees those qualities too, I was hopeful. I saw a lot of different things for him. But as I understand, it’s not going to happen.”
