Jayiya set for Citizens exit

Bhongolethu Jayiya will depart from Cape Town City upon the expiry of his contract at the end of June, with widespread interest in the winger.

After failing to agree on a new deal with the Citizens, the 27-year-old looks set to join a domestic rival, with Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Platinum Stars all vying for his signature.

The Bidvest Wits academy graduate enjoyed a mixed season with the newly formed Cape side, despite helping them to a third place league finish and winning the Telkom Knock Out.

He lost his place in the team under former head coach Eric Tinkler mid-way through the season but struck back with aplomb, scoring the fastest hattrick in the modern Premiership era, in a 4-1 win over Chippa United.

Nonetheless, his agent Glyn Binkin confirmed South Africa youth international is not short of potential suitors.

"We have numerous options for Jayiya, but we haven't agreed (to) deals with anybody as yet," he told Soccer Laduma.
