Ayanda Patosi breaks silence on developing links to Pirates, Chiefs


Midfielder Ayanda Patosi has refused to rule out the possibility of a move to the DStv Premiership after being increasingly linked with a return.

Patosi has been increasingly linked with a sensational return to South Africa with a number of high-profile Gauteng-based teams reportedly interested.

Both Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have been linked with Patosi in recent weeks who is currently on the books of Foolad in Iran.

"It's true my contract with Foolad is due to expire in June later this year," Patosi confirms to KickOff.

"We have so far not yet discussed anything. I have had a wonderful stay here in Iran and the club have treated me well.

“There has never been issues during my time here.

"On the question, if I have some offers in South Africa, I would say there is a person who is handling my affairs back in South Africa.

"So far he hasn’t told me anything.

"If there's an opportunity to return to South Africa and there's a good offer, then why not.

"I have always had the dream of playing for one of the biggest teams in South Africa, and if there is an opportunity of that happening I will highly consider that."

Patosi added that he still has links to former club Cape Town City where he enjoyed an impressive spell before securing a lucrative move to Iran.

"I’m still in touch with Mr John Comitis. I always rely on him with regard to certain issues. I still go to him for advice,” Patosi added.
