A former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates player is facing a multimillion-rand problem hindering him from finding a new club.
The January transfer window has come and gone, and Dove Wome has still not been able to find a new club.
The Togolese attacker parted ways with SuperSport United in January. While the player has been getting offers from PSL clubs interested in offering him a deal, he is sitting at home with no club due to his salary demands, according to sources.
“Dove Wome is sitting at home with no team at the moment. The problem with him is his salary. He was on a big salary at his previous club (SuperSport). He is a big and good player,” a source told the Siya crew in edition 1059 of Soccer Laduma.
Bidvest Wits, Kaizer Chiefs, Ajax Cape Town, Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United have all been linked to the former Free State Stars player.
According to a second source, the 26-year-old player was earning a monthly salary of close to R200 000 at SuperSport.
“The issue of Dove Wome is a complicated one. The player wants more than the money he was on at SuperSport. He was on big money. There have been offers for his services and he has been turning them down,” said the source.
Siya sources in the know have informed the crew that the player is looking for over R1 million signing on fee and a R250 000 monthly salary.
The Togolese international player’s contract with SuperSport would have expired in June had he stayed with the club. The player opted to leave and accept an undisclosed settlement figure from the Tshwane club.
