Jali Fit, Oostende Want +R24m
KV Oostende are willing to let Andile Jali leave the club this transfer window, but want upwards of €1.5m as a transfer fee in order to do so.
The 26-year-old’s future is in doubt at present after being the subject of speculation for a number of weeks, with the likes of English Championship side, Leeds United, thought to be interested at one stage.
However, with British work permit rules making it difficult for a South African to make the move to England, rumours have died down in the past week, although there is still thought to be interest in the Bafana Bafana international from elsewhere in Europe.
According to Siya sources in Europe, Oostende are prepared to let Jali go after he seemingly fell down the pecking order at the club – he is now fully fit but hasn’t featured at all this season so far – but will only do so if they can try and recoup some of the money they spent on him when they bought him from Orlando Pirates.
With that in mind, the Siya crew crew has been informed that it would take a bid of upwards of €1.5m (R24m) if Oostende were to let him leave, and it remains to be seen if any offer of that size will come up before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday.
The crew has previously reported that Mamelodi Sundowns are monitoring the player’s current situation, although it seems unlikely that they would be willing to meet the R24m valuation that has been put on his head.
