Third bid for Segolela

Standard Liege make a third bid for Tlou Segolela

Posted: 26 August 2011 Time: 08:38 pm

Tlou Segolela's agent has revealed Standard Liege have returned with a third bid that is ‘very close' to Orlando Pirates' asking price for the Bafana Bafana winger. 

The Belgian side have already had two offers for the 23-year-old turned down by The Buccaneers as they attempt to lure him to the Jupiler League. But agent Tim Sukazi believes their qualification for the Europa League on Thursday has given Jose Riga's side the financial muscle to persuade Pirates to sell Segolela.    "Standard Liege are very serious about acquiring Segolela and they have improved tremendously on their bid," he tells KickOff.com.   "I'm not at liberty to divulge any figures at the moment but it's now up to Pirates to decide. They have indicated what they want and Liege's new bid has got closer to that number, very close."   "I think what motivated them to improve in the way they have done is their qualification for the Europa League. But we should know more over the weekend – either this matter will still be alive or it will die" Sukazi adds.   Segolela is expected to feature for Julio Leal's side in Saturday's MTN8 clash with Mamelodi Sundowns. Sukazi admits his client is excited about the prospect of moving overseas but knows the transfer will depend on Pirates accepting the offer.   "He's very calm. Every player wants to play in Europe ultimately but Tlou knows he has to remain professional because it might or might not happen," he says.   "He wasn't for sale in the first place so any interested party knew they would have to make a big offer but Standard Liege have not been shy in doing so."

CHAMPZ don't do trials, last time I heard Pirates were not selling abroad so claimed some headless brainless stupids, now that Bra Sox is on the verge of goin overseas suddenly he cannot pass and he is a cow, who can pass? one legged shabba who failed trials in epl 2nd division? mphela who also failed trials? Bra Sox scored scored against both chimpz and sunclowns recently they must be happy hez leaving

If this team & whats written on this article is legit,then pirates must let him go.@his age,he is bound to make it in europe.he`s got the speed,all that`s required is for him to learn to deliver quality crosses then he`ll be ok!then again how do you trust that the story is real when the person who wrote it says that he has`nt scored this season?

Tlou shouldn't go oorkant unless one of the four major league teams show any interest in his services.the belgian league is nothing special,it's like championship league in england.even pienaar doesn't recomend that league.waste of the champs time.pirates is much better than that team tlou,don't go man,you will waste your talent over there.

There is no offer for this cow.
The won't be any offer for this MOOOO.

A team from DAMASCUS won't sign this headless chicken.
