Cape Town - Cape Town City boss John
Comitis says that no deal has been struck with Mamelodi Sundowns regarding
winger Lyle Lakay.
The 26-year-old former FC Cape Town and
Bloemfontein Celtic wide player was linked on the weekend with a move to
Sundowns, with one report claiming the deal just about a 'formality'.
But Comitis has told Soccer Laduma website that no
deal with Sundowns has been made, while also revealing interest from another
"I haven't done so, (agreed with
Sundowns)," Comitis revealed.
"I know that there was interest from
Sundowns and I know that there is interest from Wits. I was more interested in
looking at the Wits option because it was going to include a player swap, but
at this stage, nothing has materialised," he said.
"I was in Russia with Gavin (Hunt) and
Jose (Ferreira, the Clever Boys CEO) but nothing has materialised, and I am
waiting, hopefully, this week to see if there is anything that will be
"I know Lyle wants to make a move, so
if you noticed we have brought (Riyaad) Norodien and Gift (Links), both of them
are wingers, they can play both sides, so it will be something we would
entertain if it materialises."
