As reported in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1055, Asavela Mbekile’s exit from Sundowns is being stalled because the player is unwilling to take a salary cut. 
 
The Siya crew understands that Bloemfontein Celtic is the latest PSL club believed to be showing interest in the versatile player. Celtic has joined the likes of Orlando Pirates, Cape Town City and AmaZulu, who have been linked with the player in recent months.
 
“The stumbling block in a potential move for Asavela Mbekile from Sundowns is money. There are clubs interested in him. Cape Town City is one of the clubs interested in him. But he is on a big salary at Sundowns. He is a good player who uses his versatility very well,” said the source.
