Pirates Open Talks With Jali?
Orlando Pirates Have Entered In To Talks With Andile Jali
Orlando Pirates have opened informal talks with Andile Jali, according to Siya sources close to the player's dealings.
The 28-year-old Bafana Bafana international officially parted ways with Belgium outfit KV Oostende last month, with his return back to Mzansi’s top flight now expected to be imminent.
The Siya crew recently reached out to sources in Belgium, following his exit from Oostende, and they revealed that Pirates are believed to be in pole position to land Jali’s signature. However, the sources also revealed that Mamelodi Sundowns are still in the picture, although did not mention anything about Kaizer Chiefs, but sources in South Africa then confirmed that Amakhosi are still in the race.
The midfielder is in no rush to make a decision about where he will be playing his football next season as he is not bound by the transfer window, although will have to wait until the July/August transfer window before putting pen to paper with any interested suitor.
While the player is expected to make a decision soon, Siya sources have indicated that Bucs have already met with the player and discussed the possibility of bringing him back to the club, though no decision has been made as yet.
