Update on Louis Saha transfer

Louis Saha meets with Bidvest Wits officials

Posted: 18 January 2013 Time: 11:23 am

KickOff.com can confirm that Bidvest Wits is the only club that former French international Louis Saha will sign for should he decide to play in the PSL.

We reported yesterday that the Sunderland player was spotted at OR Tambo International; this after Black Cats boss Martin O’Neil confirmed that there was interest in the striker from South African clubs.

We can now confirm that the former Fulham and Manchester United striker met with people associated to Bidvest last night, and that a deal could be concluded by next week.

Further adding fuel to the fire are comments O’Neill made to the Sunderland Echo, saying: “As of today, we have told Louis he is free to speak to other clubs and to leave if he can fix himself up somewhere.

“We have come to an agreement whereby we will cancel the remainder of his contract, shake hands and go our separate ways.”

Wits have a relationship with Sunderland in the form of the ‘Invest in Africa’ project.

WHO IS LOUIS SAHA?
* Born in Paris on August 8, 1978
* A former scholar at the Clairefontaine football academy.
* Started his career at Metz, before a loan spell at Newcastle United

Mr Cooper i told you that your journalist skills are questionable. All you know is to call Kaizer Chiefs fans IDIOTS. We are still waiting for that apology.

Mr Cooper you the same monkey that called fans IDIOTS for signaling changes and in the same article you advocated that coach should bench other players and play others, wonder who is an IDIOT.

Mr Cooper come out and apologise or leave jounalism, it is not your field.

Just coz Bobby called these stupid Chimpanzees dogs and they still went on and lick his sweat encompased fat ballz and VV called them small children and gays who watch games on their black and white tvs, now you have the courage to call them IDIOTS.

It was totally unprofessional Mr Cooper and we are still waiting for that apology.

no story hear, just another mabhudi khanyeza/ andile jali/ OJ mabizela imbecile interms of ill-discipline.

this french cow was hoping to create a hype with his imminent arrival thinking that the mighty Chiefs or our next door neighbors from hell will counter-offer thereby raising his profile. maybe funclows will do that since they buy anything with two left feet, they even buy used tiolet paper.

Article by: Ryan Cooper I quote, “Oh how we miss Morgan Gould. Last night’s game again proved that the Sangweni/Khumalo partnership is just not working, and I’m hoping Igesund gives Bernard Parker and/or Lehlohonolo Majoro a starting chance against Algeria on Saturday.
A fair percentage of our fans are clueless about the game. The hand-ringing for coaches to make changes, the booing of players … how is this supposed to help the nation? Igesund was pleading for us to get behind the team, and by and large they did last night but for a few idiots who are not happy with the inclusion of Kaizer Chiefs players getting on the players’ backs, Andile Jali, Klate, Myeni and Segolela are not in the final 23 man squad so we must accept and move forward idiots” Unquote
