Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns claim their very public spat with Keagan Dolly's agent is now over and they are ready to resume negotiations with Montpellier over the sale of the player.

Sundowns fell out with Paul Mitchell over the club allegedly trying to block Dolly's move to Europe by turning down bids despite them matching a clause in his contract.

However, Mitchell and the Siyavuma Sports Group made a public apology to the Brazilians on Thursday and the club they are now ready to find an amicable solution to the transfer saga.

"Keagan Dolly is our player as it stands but everything is going to happen in the right way because now there is a healthy conversation with the agent and Dolly," communications officer Thulani Thuswa told Power FM's Thabiso Mosia.

"He [Paul Mitchell] has done the apology and right now we are talking healthily, freely with him, positively, about Keagan Dolly.

"He's a gentleman, he's shown he's a true gentleman [by apologising], and let's hope we see Dolly signing in a Montpellier shirt soon.

"It should happen anytime from now and Monday."
