OJ's move to Chippa in danger

Mbulelo Mabizela's move from Bidvest Wits to Chippa United may collapse as the two clubs cannot agree terms of the transfer fee.
KickOff.com reported a couple of days ago that 'OJ' was set to join the Chilli Boys and, at the time, club boss Chippa Mpengesi was confident it would happen. However, Chippa spokesperson Lukhanyo Mzinzi admits the move may not happen after all.
"It is still at a sensitive stage and it could be off because of a transfer fee," Mzinzi concedes. "But the chairman [Mpengesi] is still on it and he is still talking to Wits ... we will know by tomorrow," he adds.
Wits informed Mabizela late last year that he is no longer part of their plans. 'OJ' has a contract with Wits until 30 June 2013 with an option until 30 June 2014, but new coach Clive Barker hinted that he might take Mabizela off the transfer list.
