Sundowns Vs Chiefs: Who Will Win Jayiya’s Signature?
Mamelodi Sundowns Vs Kaizer Chiefs: Who Will Win Bhongolethu Jayiya’s Signature?
Mamelodi Sundowns are believed to be keeping a close eye on the situation of outgoing Cape Town City winger, Bhongolethu Jayiya, amidst reports of interest in the player from Kaizer Chiefs.
Cape Town City officially confirmed earlier this week that the club will not be extending Jayiya’s stay beyond the 2016/17 season, as his contract will be coming to an end tomorrow, June 30.
Jayiya will then be able to join any interested suitor as a free agent thereafter and as reported in the past month on Soccer Laduma, the likes of Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, Golden Arrows and Platinum Stars are all believed to be interested in the player’s services.
However, it has since been revealed that one of Mzansi’s big three is also interested in trying to lure the player to their camp.
In this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Siya sources have revealed to the crew that Masandawana is monitoring the player’s situation closely, as he prepares to take the next step of his professional footballing career.
The winger scored six and assisted two goals in all competitions for the Mother City-based club in the 2016/17 campaign, where he helped his former team to clinch the 2016 Telkom Knockout trophy and finish off at third place on the Absa Premiership league standings.
However, after unsuccessful negotiations to extend his stay with Chairman John Comitis’ outfit, several PSL outfits have been assessing the possibility of bringing the player on board with their clubs once he becomes a free agent on July 01.
Indications are that the 27-year-old will want to secure the best possible deal as he approaches the prime of his career.
Now, it remains to be seen whether the likes of Masandawana and Chiefs will approach the player for his services in the coming weeks.
