Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Laffor now linked with Qatar move

Laffor could reportedly turn down PSL offers, including a contract extension at Sundowns, and opt for a lucrative move to Qatar

Mamelodi Sundowns could lose attacker Anthony Laffor to an unnamed Qatari club if media reports are anything to go by.

The 31-year-old is yet to be offered a new contract by the Brazilians, and his agent, Steven Kapeluschnik confirmed to Goal earlier this year that there had not been indications as to whether or not Laffor will be retained.

Now, according to Isolezwe, the lanky utility player may consider leaving South Africa for Qatar either before the transfer window closes on January 31 or at the end of the current campaign.

The Isizulu newspaper suggests that Laffor was supposed to go to Qatar for medical tests during the Christmas break as the reported club appeared very keen to sign him.

However, Goal understands that Laffor spent his festive season in Liberia.   

His lack of regular first-team action has often left him frustrated on the sidelines, and whether or not he has made up his mind about leaving the African champions remains to be seen.

Kaizer Chiefs were believed to be keen on his signature, but football manager Bobby Motaung last week poured cold water on the reports, saying they have never been interested in Laffor.

This came soon after reports emerged that the player had signed a pre-contract with the Naturena-based outfit.

Laffor is still at Chloorkop and training with the rest of his teammates to prepare for the second half of the current season which kicks off in February.
