Bafana boss Hugo Broos is hopeful of being able to call on the services of Burnley striker Lyle Foster in the not-too-distant future.

Foster has been unavailable for national team selection since prior to the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations over reported mental health issues.

He did continue to play for his English Premier League side over the past few months, although he had been left out of the Clarets squad in recent weeks by head coach Vincent Kompany – but played the final two minutes of the league clash with Brentford at the weekend.

Bafana are in action in international duty against Andorra and Algeria over the next week but Foster was not selected as he continues his recovery.

Broos explained on FARPost: “First of all, with Foster, I saw that he was playing for 10 minutes on Saturday, so that means his injury problems are over.”

Bafana play Nigeria and Zimbabwe in World Cup qualifiers in June.

Broos added: “I will try to have contact in the next week with [Vincent] Kompany when I’m in Belgium I can go and see a game of Burnley, talk to Foster and Kompany on what we can expect in the future from him. We are certainly looking for him [to return] for the games in June.”
