Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns have expressed interest in signing a Bafana Bafana midfielder who was previously linked with Kaizer Chiefs. Thabo Cele, who has been in the spotlight due to his performances for Bafana Bafana in the COSAFA Cup, has caught the attention of these two Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs.

Cele’s potential move to Kaizer Chiefs did not materialize in the past, but now he has attracted new suitors in Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns. Sundowns is the latest PSL side to show interest in the 26-year-old midfielder, and it seems they are set to join the race for his signature.

Additionally, St. Louis City from the United States and African giants Raja Casablanca are also keen on signing Cele. The negotiations for Cele’s signature are ongoing, and the teams that have shown the most interest so far are St. Louis City, Raja Casablanca, and Sundowns. With just one year left on his contract, it has been revealed that PSL clubs have the ability to offer him a better package than what he currently has in Poland, where he plays for Radomiak Radom.

Orlando Pirates, AmaZulu, Sekhukhune United, and Stellenbosch FC are among the PSL clubs that have taken an interest in Cele. His standout performance against Namibia in Bafana Bafana’s COSAFA opener has garnered attention from these clubs. Cele’s current market value is estimated to be around R7 million, and any club wishing to sign him would need to be willing to spend a substantial amount of money to buy him out of his final year.

The transfer saga surrounding Thabo Cele has generated excitement and speculation among fans of Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, and Bafana Bafana. As the negotiations continue, fans eagerly await the outcome and the potential impact Cele could have on his new club.
