Bloemfontein Celtic are not ready to put aside their case with striker, Camaldine Abraw, and are looking to take the matter to SAFA.
The 25-year-old made the move from Free State Stars to Kaizer Chiefs during the recent transfer window, however, Celtic came out at the time and indicated that the player had already signed a pre-contract with them.
Celtic took the matter the PSL’s Dispute Resolution Chamber, but after a number of postponements, the Amakhosi announced Abraw’s registration with them for the 2015/16 campaign.
The latest news reaching the Siya desk is that Celtic are adamant that the contract with the player was in place and it is understood that they are looking to take the matter to SAFA’s Appeals Board.
“From what is happening, the team feels like the truth was not delivered. The player (Abraw) had signed a contract with Celtic before they were told about the outcome of the case. Chiefs registered the player and then after that they started using him in their games,” a source told the Siya crew.
“Those at the club dealing with it want the truth to prevail. They want to take the case further using the right channels and that’s why they want to apply for an appeal at SAFA’s Appeals Board. The club has lawyers who are dealing with the whole issue, and I can tell you that the issue is not over yet,” he added.
