Daniels' Future Not Decided

News reaching the Siya Crew is that Mamelodi Sundowns defender Clayton Daniels could stay at the club despite interest from Ajax Cape Town as negotiations hit a snag.

The Urban Warriors have been interested in luring the defender back to the Mother City but the player and his agent have been frustrated by negotiations.

"After waiting and waiting for weeks for Ajax to make an offer for Clayton, it arrived on Friday afternoon with the message that everything needs to be concluded by Monday," said Daniels' agent Rob Moore.

"Ajax is asking Daniels to take a huge pay cut despite the fact that they have made a good profit when they sold the player to Sundowns. Previously Sundowns have been made aware of the conditions under which Clayton will consider transferring from Sundowns to Ajax. We have not heard back from Sundowns, so I can only assume that there's been a U-turn at Chloorkop and they now want to keep him for the last year of his contract.

"Clayton is prepared to stay and fight for his place - however, if Sundowns want him to leave, then between Sundowns, Ajax and ourselves there needs to be an agreement.

"The way that Clayton has been treated at Sundowns is 100 percent not his fault - he was a regular starter under (Johan) Neeskens, often winning Man of the Match awards and the chairman (Patrice Motsepe) himself told me that he was an excellent professional.

"Upon the appointment of Pitso Mosimane, the chairman personally assured me that Clayton's future was not under threat when I directly discussed the subject with him. But immediately after taking over, (Pitso) Mosimane dropped Daniels.

"I'd hardly call that giving Daniels a fair crack of the whip and it really is a mystery why he has been frozen out, like he has. Sundowns haven't exacatly been a revelation since their change of management. It really is unbelievable - now everyone expects him to take a 30 percent pay cut for something that hasn't been his fault?"
