Zamalek tables R20m offer for Erasmus

Cape Town – Zamalek have reached an agreement with Orlando Pirates over the sale of Kermit Erasmus, according to reports.

The Egyptian club have met with the striker’s representatives to negotiate personal terms and the deal is set to be announced soon.

Erasmus was part of the Pirates squad who lost to Zamalek 2-1 over the past weekend at the Mbombela Stadium in a CAF Confederation Cup encounter.

“These are obviously unofficial amounts, but I believe the transfer fee Pirates could be getting is in the region of about R20-million,” said an unnamed source as quoted by KickOff.

“Also, they’ve already engaged with Erasmus’ representatives, and the offer to the player stands in the region of $30 000 [R350 000] per month.”

Reports suggest that Zamalek’s arch-rivals Al Ahly were also interested in signing the former SuperSport United striker.

The 25-year-old striker began his career at SuperSport United before sealing a move to Dutch side Feyenoord for the 2008/09 season.

Feyenoord then sent the Port Elizabeth-born forward on loan to Excelsior, a lower league Dutch side.

Erasmus returned to the PSL in July 2010, after failing to convince Feyenoord of his quality, and re-joined SuperSport United.

Erasmus scored 14 goals in 53 appearances for Matsatsantsa before Orlando Pirates confirmed a deal for him in July 2013.

The striker has just eight Bafana Bafana caps to his name with that figure set to remain after the player fell out with coach Shakes Mashaba recently.
