A R2 million asking fee could hinder a potential move to the top-flight for Puleng Tlolane who is stuck at relegated Polokwane City.
Despite attracting interest from a number of clubs in the DStv Premiership, Tlolane could find himself playing in the second tier this season as his current employers at Polokwane City are said to be reluctant to part ways with him, as reported in edition 1199 of Soccer Laduma.
Cape Town City, Baroka FC and Maritzburg United are some of the clubs believed to have made enquiries into the availability of the 29-year-old forward, though a stumbling block could be that Polokwane is looking for around R2 million for his services, according to sources.
“The boy is frustrated that he might have to play in the NFD (GladAfrica Championship) this season, although the club (Polokwane) has told him that that’s not what they want. But the thing is that they want to cash in on him. It’s quite a substantial amount of money that they are looking for, which is in the region of R2 million,” said the source.
“He has tried to plead with the club for his release, but he is not succeeding. He is worried that the end of the 2020/21 season is too far for his contract to end. Who’s going to buy a player in the NFD for R2 million during this time where COVID-19 also has its disturbances? The boy is stressed that he has to watch other players playing in the PSL,” the source added.
