In the past week Bidvest Wits Clever Boys’ midfielder Sibusiso Vilakazi has been in the news regarding the R15-million price tag Bidvest Wits has reportedly placed on him.

However, with only two weeks left of the transfer window, Bidvest Wits COO, Jonathan Schloss denied the speculation to Wits Vuvuzela saying “there are no discussions around Vilakazi’s transfer.”

Schloss did not respond to further requests for comment from Wits Vuvuzela.

According to a report in Soccer Laduma, the Clever Boys have turn down several offers for their 26-year-old star player including a R9-million offer from Kaiser Chiefs. Mamelodi Sundowners were also reportedly unsuccessful in securing ‘Vila’ as one of their own.

According to Soccer Laduma’s website, the Clever Boys will not trade Vilakazi anything less than R15-million or a player of equal value.

“It seems unlikely that they will get the player they wanted in Sibusiso Vilakazi,” an unnamed source told the website.

Vilakazi has been with Bidvest Wits for six years and also plays for Bafana Bafana. Last year he won player of the season for the 2013-2014 Premier Soccer League and the Nedbank player of the tournament in the same year.
