Cape club Ajax Cape Town tells Goal that young starlet Keagan Dolly will not leave their shores for PSL champions, Mamelodi Sundowns this season
It was then alleged that the Tshwane-based club won the race for his services, but Ajax Media and Communications Manager Milo Bo says the Westbury-born player is staying put. They have not received any transfer request from him, nor a bid from any of his potential suitors.
"I have no confirmation that he is leaving, he was training with the team today, and he is very happy here. He has not come to us and handed in a request that he wants to leave and we have also not received any enquiries for his services from anybody as yet. He has got a two-year contract with us and he is happy to see it out until the very end," he told Goal.
The left-footed player is initially a product of the Mamelodi Sundowns development academy as they had him on their books from 2008 to 2011, until he departed for the Ajax development institute after game-time at the young Brazilians were hard to come by.
He mastered the Urban Warriors culture and customs like a glove and in the beginning of last season under Muhsin Ertugral he was promoted to the first-team along with many others like Bantu Mzwakali and Toriq Losper, who has since left for Bidvest Wits.
The Urban Warriors, for their part have become a selling club over the last few seasons, losing a host of influential men like Thulani Serero, Sameegh Doutie, Clayton Daniels, George Maluleka and Khama Billiat to big outfits at home and abroad.
It's perhaps evidently clear that they don't want to lose another of their key men so early on in Dolly, hence they are doing all to hold onto him.
