Malmo Net R9m After Rantie Promotion

Swedish club, Malmo FF, are believed to have netted a further R9 million for the sale of Tokelo Rantie following AFC Bournemouth’s promotion to the English Premier League.

Rantie was a record signing for the Cherries when he joined them at the end of 2013, and while he hasn’t enjoyed the brightest of spells in England, he has contributed to their title winning exploits this season.

According to Swedish website, fotbollskanalen.se, there was a clause in the original sale that would see Malmo receive extra payment should Bournemouth manage to reach England’s top-flight, a feat that was confirmed when they beat Charlton at the weekend.

Their promotion means that they now owe Malmo a further £500,000 for Rantie, from the day that the Cherries begin playing in the Premier League, something that was recently confirmed to fotbollskanalen.se.

As things stand, Rantie, and his South African-born teammate, Andrew Surman, will be joining Steven Pienaar as the Premier League’s Mzansi representatives.

Rantie has now been involved with three title winning sides in the last three-and-a-half years, winning the Absa Premiership with Orlando Pirates, the Allsvenskan with Malmo and now the Championship with Bournemouth.
