Andile Jali To Make Mzansi Move In January?
Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Andile Jali, could make his way back to South Africa in the upcoming January transfer window period, with his current club looking to avoid losing his services on a free.
Jali’s contract with Belgium-side, KV Oostende is set to come to an end next year, June 30, however, the club has been open to the sale of the Bafana Bafana international for quite some time now.
The Siya crew reported in July this year that Oostende was looking to cash in on around €450,000 (±R7 million) for the transfer of the 27-year-old.
However, with Jali continuing at the club, it has been revealed to Soccer Laduma that the Belgium-side is still aiming to cash in on the player come January next year, however, will be at a reduced price in order to avoid losing his services on a free when his deal comes to an end in June.
Siya sources have informed the crew that Jali’s camp is currently assessing the player’s options and a move back to the Premier Soccer League is currently one of the hottest topics.
However, with the player currently in the final year of his contract with Oostende, Jali will be able to pen a pre-contract with any interested suitor in January next year and subsequently leave on a free at the end of his deal. Although, as things stand, the club would prefer to sell the midfielder in January and cash in on the player.
The player’s representative, Mike Makaab from Prosport International, previously revealed to the crew that there is interest in the Bafana international from the PSL and it remains to be seen whether the likes of Pirates and Sundowns will look to approach Oostende for Jali’s services.
