The shock relegation of Marumo Gallants from the topflight has seen a number of teams join Orlando Pirates in the race for star attacker Katlego Otladisa’s services and MaMkhize’s Royal AM is no exception.
Gallants have been reluctant to part ways with one of their star performers especially with the team enjoying a stellar run in the CAF Confederations Cup. However, with the club subsequently dropping down to the Motsepe Foundation Championship, a number of clubs have been eyeing their best players with some understood to have been snapped up already.
The crew previously reported that Pirates, who are long-term admirers of the former Mamelodi Sundowns player, are keen on his services, but the latest news reaching the crew’s desk is that they are not the only team vying for the player.
According to Siya sources, ambitious KZN side Royal AM have joined the race for his signature!
Royal AM, who missed out on a top eight spot in the 2022/23 season are keen to bolster their squad and word reaching the crew is that they have identified the 26-year-old as a top priority.
While he did not contribute much in terms of goals, Otladisa has made an impressive 43 appearances for Gallants in all competitions in the season gone by.
