Johannesburg - Bongani Khumalo's move to Tottenham Hotspur is far from a done deal, so says SuperSport United chairman Khulu Sibiya.
The South Africa defender is scheduled to join the English
Premier League side in January but Sibiya has warned that United's
terms have yet to be met.
"This is not a foregone conclusion and Tottenham will have to
pitch a new and better offer during the next transfer window.
Negotiations will open then," Sibiya told the Sowetan.
Sibiya declined to reveal Khumalo's price tag but insists Matsatsantsa have the 23-year-old's best interests at heart.
"People have very short memories when it comes to these kind of
things. I can assure you that Bongani will look back and thank us," he
"I am of the opinion that the player has a lot of potential and
if he is patient and concentrates on cementing his place in the
national team he will go far.
"I feel sure that in a few months Bongani's stature will have risen and he will secure himself an even better overseas move."
