SuperSport United have told Tottenham Hotspur they they’ll need to increase the bid in order to sign Bongani Khumalo.
The 23-year-old South African central defender was quoted earlier this week claiming that he was confident that a deal would be announced after he enjoyed a trial spell at Spurs last month.
Reading the quotes below from the SuperSport chairman, he’s got a bit of a cheek by suggesting that he can secure a better overseas move if he focuses on his game. I’m sure if we’re good enough for Rafael Van Der Vaart then we’re good enough for this lad!
“This is not a foregone conclusion and Tottenham will have to pitch a new and better offer during the next transfer window. Negotiations will open then,” SuperSport chairman Khulu Sibiya told the Sowetan.
He added: “People have very short memories when it comes to these kind of things. I can assure you that Bongani will look back and thank us.
“I am of the opinion that the player has a lot of potential and if he is patient and concentrates on cementing his place in the national team he will go far.
“I feel sure that in a few months Bongani’s stature will have risen and he will secure himself an even better overseas move.”
