Update On Hadebe’s R25m Transfer
Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Teenage Hadebe is close to moving to Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo in a R25 million deal and here is the latest on the transfer.
Hadebe, 25, left Chiefs in 2019 to join Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor.
He’s helped the Super Lig club to prevent relegation over the last two campaigns, but is now set to move to the MLS.
It was reported that both clubs agreed to $1.8 million (R25 million) transfer and Malatyaspor’s president Adil Gevrek has now confirmed that the deal is “90% complete”.
“We haven’t shared this issue yet, and the reason is this: We agreed with the American team 90 percent, but a clause was put there,” he told Turkish publication MalatyaHaber.
“The player will go, have a health check, and after these processes are over, both the American club and we will make a statement.
“For this reason, we cannot say that the transfer is over and therefore we did not share this issue.”
Hadebe made 39 appearances for Chiefs between 2017 and 2019, and also represented Zimbabwe 29 times.
