Bloemfontein Celtic are expected to put in a bid for the services of Baroka FC midfielder Sipho Moeti. Celtic emerged as the most likely team to land Moeti, who has already indicated he would be leaving Baroka when his contract expires at the end of June.
The 26-year-old midfielder took the decision not to renew his contract with Baroka after the team narrowly avoided relegation for the second season in succession.
Baroka CEO Morgan Mamilla confirmed Moeti no longer formed part of his club’s future plans. Sources close to Moeti said he is still weighing up various offers and options.
Briefly.co.za can also confirm that SuperSport United has parted ways with veterans Kingston Nkhatha and Tefu Mashamaite.
SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews confirmed the news. He said the club had taken the decision not to renew either player’s contract.
Mashamaite joined SuperSport after stints at Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs in 2016. He was only selected to play in four league games in the recently completed PSL season.
Nkhatha arrived from Kaizer Chiefs in 2015. He had a horrible 2017/18 season and failed to score a single goal in 15 matches.
Sport24.co.za reported that Matthews poured cold water on speculation that Andile Jali would be moving to the club.
"I don't think there's a club who wouldn't want to sign Jali. He is a fantastic footballer. Yes, I did call his agent to inquire about his situation, but we can't afford him. His demands are too steep for us," Matthews said.
