Scott deal ‘80% done’

The 28-year-old has spent the past 10 days on trial with the European club, and is due back in the country on Friday, yet is set to make an immediate return to Slovakia before putting pen to paper.

“He’s probably going to go back straight away. The deal is 80% done,” Ajax coach Roger De Sa tells

“The club phoned us on Tuesday, yet I wanted to talk to the player first. Scottie really wants this, and we won’t hold him back.”

Minor details in the player’s contract need to be finalised before sealing the deal, which would see Scott earning a handsome R300 000 per month.

Scott has been a first-team regular for the past 12 season with the Urban Warriors, and has over 180 starts to his name.
