Andile Jali is coming back to South Africa in the wake of ending his relationship with KV Oostende, the Belgian club has confirmed.
Since last year, Jali’s future at Oostende has been in doubt, with all of Mzansi’s top clubs all linked with the midfielder. Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are all believed to be chasing the central midfielder’s signature.
With the former Pirates player’s contract at Oostende set to come to an end on June 30, it has now been decided between the parties that the Bafana Bafana star will be leaving.
Oostende have confirmed that Jali is coming back to Mzansi, although there has been no confirmation on his next destination.
“Contract Andile Jali ended
“KVO and Andile Jali will be broken by mutual agreement. Jali leaves with immediate effect to his native South Africa. Andile Jali arrived in Oostende in January 2014. He came from the South African Orlando Pirates. In October 2017, the defensive midfielder rounded the cape of 100 matches at KVO. His contract expired at the end of this season and he decided earlier to return to his native country. A few weeks ago Jali fell out with a knee injury which made his season almost as good as it was. Now it was decided in mutual consultation to terminate the contract with immediate effect. We thank Andile for his 4.5 years at KVO and we wish him every success in his native country!(translated),” Ostende confirmed.
Er werd in onderling overleg beslist om het contract met Andile Jali met onmiddellijke ingang te beëindigen. De middenvelder was sowieso einde contract op het einde van dit seizoen. Thanks @andilejali870 & good luck !
