Jali undecided on European future

Posted: 10 October 2017 Time: 13:50

Andile Jali is unsure if he will stay at Belgian club Oostende next season and says he will consult his family before deciding his future.

Jali's contract with Oostende will expire in June next year, meaning he can pen a pre-contract with any team in January as things stand.

However, Oostende have indicated they wish to hold talks with the former Orlando Pirates star over a new deal.

"I am not yet sure whether I will stay with Oostende or not next season. At the moment I have a contract with the club and am focusing on playing football," Jali told


"The club has made mention that they want to talk but I can officially confirm that once my agent talks to my club. At the moment my agent is the right person to talk to and comment about that."

Speculative reports recently linked Jali with a PSL return, although his agent Mike Makaab told this website at the time there was no substance to such talk and made clear his client was wholly committed to his employers. He also confirmed Oostende's interest in a contract renewal.

Asked about the speculation, Jali said: "When the situation comes to decide about my future in football that will be based on the influence of my family. They come first in everything. I will listen to them before I decide whether I come back home."

The 27-year-old helped Bafana Bafana beat Burkina Faso 3-1 in a World Cup qualifier at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
