Over­seas clubs join Chiefs & Sun­downs in Dove chase

Soccer Laduma - - Siyag Bhoza -

The lat­est news reach­ing the Siya crew is that out­fits from abroad are be­lieved to be show­ing in­ter­est in the ser­vices of one of Cape Town City’s de­fend­ers.

Kaizer Ki Chiefs Chi f and dM Mamelodi l di Sun­downs have both re­port­edly shown a keen in­ter­est in Ed­mil­son Dove, though the two PSL gi­ants have been joined in for­eign in­ter­est for the player.

Dur­ing the July/ Au­gust trans­fer win­dow, it was re­vealed that City had re­buffed Amakhosi’s in­ter­est in the Mozam­bique in­ter­na­tional, say­ing no to any pos­si­ble sale; how­ever, the Soweto gi­ants are be­lieved to still be in­ter­ested in the 24-year-old.

Now, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est news fil­ter­ing through from Siya sources, undis­closed clubs in USA’s Ma­jor League Soc­cer, France and in Turkey are keep­ing a close eye on Dove.

Ac­cord­ing to the sources, the player is be­ing mar­keted abroad and in­di­ca­tions are that there is solid in­ter­est in the player.

De­spite sources close to the player con­firm­ing the in­ter­est, club chair­man John Comi­tis re­vealed that he was un­aware of it.

Dove is pre­dom­i­nantly played at left back, though has slot­ted in at cen­tre-back for City, prov­ing his ver­sa­til­ity in de­fence. The fact that he can play in both po­si­tions will be seen as a big ad­van­tage by his suit­ors.

Dove is un­der con­tract with City un­til 2022 and in­di­ca­tions are that City’s man­age­ment will not en­ter­tain any of­fers un­less it makes busi­ness sense for them, and it has been sug­gested that the club will not look at any trans­fer fee un­der R4 mil­lion.

It may come down to which club is will­ing to pay the high­est price, though for any deal to ma­te­ri­alise, the player will have to agree on the move.
