Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Keagan Dolly’s transfer to Montpellier is “almost sorted”, according to one of the agents involved in the negotiations.

Dolly has been embroiled in a controversial transfer battle with the club for weeks after Sundowns amended his buyout clause.

The former Ajax Cape Town playmakers clause was said to be €750 000 but has since been changed to €1.5m.

Montpellier have reportedly tabled an offer around €1.7m to which the club have accepted according to Bruno Satin.

“It is almost sorted. I’m sure they will get him. They have lifted their fee,” Bruno Satin said as quoted by the SowetanLIVE.

“I reckon it could be done by the end of the day. They really want him.”

Meanwhile, Dolly’s representative Paul Mitchell has slammed the Brazilians of wanting to send the midfielder to Major Soccer League (MLS) club.

A move to the Ligue 1 would see Dolly join fellow South African's Kermit Erasmus (Rennes) and Lebo Mothiba (Lille).
