In-demand Royal Eagles striker Sedwyn George has turned to the South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) in a bid to obtain a copy of his contract amid interest from Kaizer Chiefs.
George has scored 17 goals in the National First Division for Eagles this season and is firmly on the radar of the Glamour Boys, who want to sign him on a pre-contract.
According to information gathered by KickOff.com the KwaZulu-Natal-born striker’s initial contract with Eagles is set to expire in June this year, but the club claims two more years are left on his deal.
Ajax Cape Town and an unnamed Swedish club are also reportedly interested in the NFD top scorer.
SAFPU general secretary Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe confirms that the player, through his representative, has asked the Union to intervene.
“We are working on that issue. The only thing we are asking the club is to furnish the player with his contract. He is entitled to his contract,” Gaoshubelwe tells KickOff.com.
Eagles general manager Richard Makhoba insists that the player has a long-term contract with the club and says he is not aware if he has an agent.
“The boy has a contract with us. Unfortunately I can’t discuss issues of contracts between us and players in the media,” says Makhoba.
“We are aware there are PSL teams and also a top Swedish club interested in the player. The teams interested in the services of the boy know our offices.
“At this moment we are not interested in entertaining any offers as we are focusing on qualifying for promotion.”
Eagles are third in the NFD, 11 points behind leaders Thanda Royal Zulu, but can still reach the top tier via the playoffs if the automatic promotion place is out of reach.
