As reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, Bloemfontein Celtic’s Kabelo Mahlasela has linked an overseas move.
As confirmed by sources close to the Mangaung club, Mahlasela is being tracked by a club in Switzerland. The player was heavily linked with a move to PSL giants, Kaizer Chiefs, during the July/August transfer window.
The Sebokeng-born player has been linked with all of the so-called Big Three, in Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates. The 26-year-old is in the last year of his contract at Celtic.
The club has attempted to tie their star down on a new contract, however, it is believed that the player is reluctant to sign the new deal with the Mangaung club, with indications that he is on the lookout for a new challenge.
The latest word coming out of the Free State is that Swiss football club, FC Basel, are monitoring Mahlasela’s situation closely and with keen interest.
“FC Basel from Switzerland is monitoring Kabelo Mahlasela. There is interest in the player from them,” said the source.
Mahlasela was an unused substitute during the 1-0 win for Celtic against Bidvest Wits on the weekend.
