Cape Town - Representatives of Keagan Dolly and his club Mamelodi Sundowns are scheduled to meet on Monday before the PSL's Dispute Resolution Chamber about a buy-out clause in his contract.

It had been reported that Greek giants, Olympiacos, agreed to pay the R12m fee (€800 000) earlier this season for the player's services.

However, Sundowns were said to have not responded before the last transfer window closed.

According to Soccer Laduma, Sundowns want to take Dolly before the DRC as they feel a mistake has been made regarding the buy-out clause listed in his current agreement with the club.

This is seemingly despite the fact that the 23-year-old has had a contract at the club for close to 15 months.

The publication has confirmed the meeting between the player's representatives and the club will take place today, although Dolly won't be present as he is on international duty in Mozambique with Bafana Bafana.

"That contract included a European buyout, and it's only when an actual European offer that matched that buyout was presented did Sundowns now try to change the goalposts by citing a mistake in the contract," a source told the same publication about the issue.
