Agent blocks Manyama's move to Kaizer Chiefs

Manyama's agent and former Bafana player Maimane Phiri rejected a three-year contract offered to the player, saying that the 23-year-old midfielder is moving to Europe
Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that the club will no longer sign Ajax Cape Town midfielder Lebogang Manyama at least until the end of the current season.

Manyama's agent Maimane Phiri is rejecting the offer presented to the player after the two teams - Chiefs and Ajax - came to an agreement that Manyama can move to Naturena.

Phiri believes that Manyama's only priority for now is to go abroad at the end of his contract with the Urban Warriors next June.

"The much anticipated move of the 23-year-old midfielder, Lebogang Manyama from Ajax Cape Town to the Amakhosi is put on ice.

The club presented an offer to the player through his agent following the agreement reached by the two Clubs for the move to take place. After a series of negotiations the Agent informed Chiefs that the player will be moving overseas at the end of the 2013/14 PSL season," AmaKhosi revealed on their website.

Chiefs announced on Tuesday night that Manyama's move to Naturena is "imminent", but that was before they even spoke to the 23-year-old Bafana man and his representatives.
