Zungu Bid Accepted, French Move On The Cards
Amiens Have Been Given Permission To Talk To Bafana's Bongani Zungu
Portuguese club, Vitoria de Guimaraes, are believed to have accepted an offer from Amiens SC, with the French outfit looking to try and sign Bafana Bafana’s Bongani Zungu.
The Siya crew reported earlier this week that the Ligue 1 team had turned their attention to the 24-year-old as they look to bolster their squad further before the window ends.
Now, according to Siya sources, Amiens have been given permission to open up talks with the South African international – while he’s in camp with the South African national team – after Guimaraes were satisfied with the transfer bid put in front of them.
While it is unknown exactly how much Amiens have offered, Guimaraes were thought to be looking for a figure of around €2.5m for Zungu if they were to let him go, with the price having been lowered due to the fact that he is now in the last year of his contract.
Given the fact that Zungu is currently in Cape Verde it remains to be seen what the logistics of getting the deal finalised will include, however, Christophe Pélissier will be hoping that his side can do enough to persuade the former Mamelodi Sundowns man to make the move to the French North.
