The South Africa youth international is currently undergoing trials at Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes

Bidvest Wits CEO Jose Ferreira admits they will find it difficult to hold onto their talisman Phakamani Mahlambi with interest from Europe piling up for his services.

“As much as we’d like to keep him, we now have to face the facts we can’t refuse the kind of deals being offered,” Ferreira told Sowetan Live.

“But we insisted that they look at him first because we don’t want a situation where they sign him, then they discover they don’t like him or he doesn’t fit into the coach’s plans and he sits on the outside with his talent not being utilized,” he said.

“We said to them ‘have him on trial and take your time and look at him properly’,” he added.

It’s said that Guimaraes are offering an attractive deal, but there has also been interest from English Premier League sides Bournemouth AFC and Crystal Palace.

Guimaraes currently have three South Africans on their books with Bongani Zungu, Haashim Domingo and Thibang Phete.
