According to a source close to Jali's representatives, Genk made an effort to snare Jali's signature after he turned down an offer to renew his contract with Oostende.

"There are two teams in Belgium, including Genk, that have shown interest in Andile Jali," says the informant.

"However, he has made up his mind and is coming back home next season."

Jali is two weeks away from resuming training as he makes his way back from a knee injury.
