Information coming through from Swaziland is that national team striker Felix Badenhorst has been offered a whopping E700 000, two-year deal by Democratic Republic of Congo giants, AS Vita.
The Times of Swaziland website reports that the Mbabane Swallows striker has been listed among their signings and is set to earn E30 000 per month at Vita.
However, it is reported that the talks are still underway between the two sides and Badenhorst was due to leave this week.
According to the report, Badenhorst is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow Swazi international forward Mthunzi Mkhontfo.

“The deal is lucrative for the player, because he is being highly rated here. More than Xavi and on top of the salary (sic), the player will also get a car and good accommodation,” a source told the Swazi website revealed.
Meanwhile, representing Badenhorst is Alimas Bin Saleh who is the same agent behind Mkhontfo's move from Royal Leopards earning the police side about E450 000 in transfer fees.
On the other hand, Swallows acting CEO Sibusiso Manana is quoted as saying that the talks between the two teams were still ongoing regarding Badenhorst's transfer.
“Nothing has been finalised yet. We will be in a position to inform the public once everything has been finalised,” he said.
The 2016 COSAFA Castle Cup leading goalscorer was previously linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs in the South African Premier Soccer, but the move fell through.
However, he was invited to train with Bloemfontein Celtic and also failed to impress the Siwelele technical team and is now on the verge of joining Florent Ibenge's side.
