SA Starlet Chased By French Champions?
Siphephelo “Yaya” Sithole, who told iDiski Times in edition 19 that clubs from France and Germany are interested in him, is reportedly a target of French champions Lille.
The 22-year-old had a good season with Belenenses in Portugal, making 25 appearances in Liga NOS.
His fine performances have not gone unnoticed and after he told iDiski Times senior writer Velile Mnyandu that he’s “been receiving some calls everywhere, Italy, France, Germany, Turkey; here, the big giants here in Portugal”, he’s been making headlines in Portugal.
It seems the interest in his services is now intensifying with Portuguese news outlet A Bola reporting that Lille are interested in his services.
In addition, Ligue 1 sides Strasbourg and Lorient are also said to be keen on the commanding midfielder.
Sithole still has contract with Belenenses until June 2024 but his club are not ruling out selling him due to their financial situation. However, no concrete offers have been received by Sithole’s current club, according to the report.
‘Yaya’ was in South Africa’s preliminary Olympics squad but David Notoane has confirmed that his club seem unlikely to release him.
