- Pule Ekstein’s agent, Palesa Mkhize, revealed that the player’s rumoured move to Orlando Pirates was never on the cards
- Mkhize disclosed that Ekstein only received a formal enquiry from Cape Town City
- Ekstein became a free agent after leaving Kaizer Chiefs prematurely and Mkhize says the door is still open for other clubs to lure him
After Pule Ekstein’s premature exit from Kaizer Chiefs in April, many rumours linked him with a controversial move to Soweto rivals, Orlando Pirates.
However, this could not be further from the truth as explained by Ekstein’s agent, Palesa Mkhize.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Pirates haven’t expressed any interest in Ekstein.
SowetanLIVE reported that only Cape Town City have sent a formal enquiry for Ekstein’s services.
Mkhize revealed that they’ve proposed a salary package to the side based in the Mother City, but no deal has been concluded yet.
Mkhize said, “The team that we have tabled our demands to in terms of the salary package and everything‚ is City. We are now awaiting for their response.”
The agent was quick to point out that his client is still a free agent and that they are open to offers from all clubs.
Many Chiefs supporters admired Ekstein’s talent, but he was often criticised for the lack of end product.
A goal return of nine in 97 matches is testament to this, but Mkhize strongly believes that he will sign for the right club before the new season commences.
