This website on Monday revealed Lakay had handed in a transfer request and, according to a source within the Celtic camp, the 25-year-old has not reported for training.

"He [Lakay] is not here. We started training again last week but he is still not here and no one really knows where he is except the management because they don't seem concerned about his whereabouts,” the source tells


Lakay has recently been linked with Cape Town City and Bidvest Wits, although his situation at Phunya Sele Sele seems to have put the brakes on any potential deals moving forward.

This website attempted to reach both Lakay and his agent Vasili Katz, although neither were available for comment.
