“Of course, no club has an advantage over any other but there’s been so much interest for the player [Wadi].

“He has done great for his club and he is an asset. They will probably want to further offer him something but he prefers a new challenge.

“At the moment we are not rushing anything. We have to be clever because we have to get a club where our client will be able to establish himself.”

Wadi is currently plying his trade with JDR Stars in the Motsepe Foundation Championship, the second tier division.

He is contesting for the 2023 season golden boot award with 11 goals to his name, three behind leading top scorer Ashley Cupido of Cape Town Spurs.

In the previous season, he missed out on the gong by few goals to Khuda Muyaba of Polokwane City who scored 12 while Wadi netted nine times.
