With Orlando Pirates showing interest in an Ivorian striker, the Siya crew has learnt that the player’s club is open to listening to official offers.
After playing against Botswana outfit Jwaneng Galaxy in the CAF Confederation Cup, the Buccaneers are believed to have identified Ivorian striker Sede Dion with a view of bolstering their attack for the 2021/22 season with him, as reported in edition 1213 of Soccer Laduma.
The 22-year-old is believed to have impressed Pirates with his work-rate, and with the league in Botswana still on suspension after over six months, news reaching the Siya crew is that the player has become increasingly frustrated and wants out to assess his options.
With the highly-rated player left with one more year to run on his existing contract in Botswana, and with his current club aware of the interest in his services, indications are that the club is keen to listen to offers.
“Sede Dion is looking forward to making a move to South Africa in his next deal. The league in Botswana is still on hold and the player is very frustrated knowing that there is interest in him from elsewhere. All that he has been doing is to go to gym to try and maintain his fitness and that can be frustrating for a professional footballer. The player’s representatives will be trying by all means in the coming weeks to engage the club to allow him to move on. The club has previously indicated that they won’t have any issues with allowing him to move. It’s just that there is a contract in place and they will need some form of compensation,” said the source.
