Ajax Cape Town striker, Nathan Paulse, is set to stay at the club with a new deal coming his way.
This comes after the crew previously reported that there were ongoing talks between the two parties, as the technical team was impressed with lanky forward’s input.
Speaking to the crew, Ari Efstathiou, the club’s CEO, revealed that the player is staying at the club and will be offered a new deal.
“Nathan is staying at the club and will be offered a new one-year deal with an option to renew. We’d like him to contribute more to the club and with his experience in the game, he’s definitely an asset to the club,” said Efstathiou.
The player’s contract is set to expire at the end of June this year, and he has started nine games while coming off the bench seven times. The Athlone-born player has been hit by injury this season and that dampened his form.
With the departure of Eleazar Rodgers returning to Mamelodi Sundowns, Roger De Sa, will hope to see Paulse guiding his youthful players, and that will enhance his chances of staying put at Ikamva.
Paulse himself revealed that there’s nothing reached yet, but that he’s optimistic he will stay.
“Look, there’s nothing concrete yet, but there’s been talks and I’m optimistic that I will stay at the club. You’ll be the first to know should anything come up,” said Paulse.
