Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League have entered the fray in efforts to resolve the transfer dispute between Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic over striker Camaldine Abraw.

Last month, Celtic announced that Abraw had signed a pre-contract with them, but Amakhosi unveiled the player as their own at a press conference in June.

Phunya Sele Sele have since threatened to take Chiefs to the Dispute Resolution Chamber, while the player himself is in danger of being slapped with a six-month ban for signing with two clubs.

However, the PSL are hoping to find an amicable resolution before the matter goes to the DRC, with spokesperson Luxolo September revealing all parties would hold round-table discussions on Tuesday.

"Contrary to media reports, this is a conciliation, not the PSL's Dispute Resolution Chamber," September is quoted as saying by KickOff.

"The League's involvement in today's proceeding is that of a facilitator. All the clubs involved will get a chance to sort the matter out between them.

"If the matter is not sorted between the clubs today, then it will go to the DRC. But it's very important for fans to know that the League will have no input in the outcome of today's case. It's between the clubs involved."
