Cape Town - Bafana Bafana midfielder Andile Jali could leave Belgian club KV Oostende, according to his his agent Mike Makaab.

The 27-year-old was in impressive form for the Belgian Pro League side this season, helping them to a fifth place finish on the league table, and a place in next season Champions League qualifiers.

However, with former Orlando Pirates star having entered the final 12 months of his contract with the club, Makaab has told the SowetanLIVE website that their are club's across Europe and South Africa that are interested in signing the player.

"We are looking at a move for him‚" Jali’s agent Makaab said.

"We have been contacted and there has been some interest from both Europe and South Africa.

"But if he does come back to South Africa it will have to be a lucrative deal for him‚ because he is now an experienced player who is a regular in the national team."

Rather than lose him on a free transfer, Oostende could opt to sell Jali, who was close to completing a move to English Championship side Leeds United at the beginning of last year.
