DURBAN - Bafana Bafana midfielder Andile Jali will only join a club which offers him a good financial package.

Jali's contract with Belgian outfit KV Oostende is set to expire at the end of June and the Matatiele-born star is on the radar of the country's top three clubs - Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.

He joined Oostende in 2015 having left Pirates. His manager, Mike Makaab of ProSport International, said they are yet to sign with any club.

“All the top sides in South Africa are interested in Andile Jali but we haven’t had any official talks with any one at this stage," Makaab said yesterday

"But Jali is not getting any younger. He is a family man now. We have to make sure the club that signs him is one that is going to give him a good financial package.

"Longevity is very key at this stage of his career. It will depend on what is on the table. It not about many things,” Makaab explained.

Sundowns are renowned for giving players good financial packages and it will come as no surprise if he does end up at Chloorkop.

“It is not 100% that Jali is coming back. If we get a good offer from European sides we will consider it. Anything can still happen in the next few months. His club also wants to keep him. But at the moment nothing has happened.”
