Cape Town - The PSL DRC have set a date in August for Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic to resolve the matter surrounding the Camaldine Abraw transfer.

Sport24 reported that the Togolese striker was unveiled by Chiefs as a new signing last month, but since Celtic remain adamant that Abraw is their player and that he signed a three-year pre-contract with them before ‘joining’ Chiefs.

Last week Chiefs failed to pitch up for their meeting in order to try and resolve the matter but PSL communications officer, Lux September said that “attendance was completely optional.”

Phunya Sele Sele released a statement on their official website confirming that the DRC have schedule a hearing date.

Here is Celtics’ statement in full:

“The Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) of the National Soccer League has scheduled the hearing between Bloemfontein Celtic (Applicant) and Kaizer Chiefs (Respondent) for the 4th August 2015, where the matter is expected to be thoroughly dealt with.

“The hearing which will be held in Parktown at the PSL offices pertains to the disagreement about one Camaldine Abraw, who had initially signed a three year pre-contract with Celtic only to be unveiled as Chiefs player at a later stage.

“This a second attempt to resolve the matter through the DRC after the initial hearing did not sit because Celtic was the only party in attendance.”
