Baroka FC CEO Morgan Mammila insists Kaizer Chiefs must cough up a higher transfer fee if they are to sign midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase.
The 24-year-old was strongly on the radar of the Soweto giants, but the potential move appears to be off the cards - unless an acceptable fee is put on the table.
“You know in football you go up and down. It’s still early and anything can happen. For now Ntshangase is a Baroka player,” Mammila is quoted by Kick-Off.
“He has a say as a player in where he wants to go because we all have rights. He wants to go to Chiefs.
“It’s every player’s dream to play for Chiefs, but if Chiefs don’t come on board he has to open up his mind and see [where else he can go].
“Chiefs have put in an offer, [but] we don’t think the offer is good enough. A player like him can range between R2-4 million.
“I can’t say numbers, but the offer [Chiefs have made] is too little for us. And the player knows that the offer is too little.”
The in-demand Ntshangase looks set to be signed by Bloemfontein Celtic, who yesterday confirmed a deal which saw Kabelo Mahlasela head to Chiefs, with defender Lorenzo Gordinho heading in the opposite direction.
