Speaking to the Independent Media, Comitis said they were not happy with what the Turkish club, believed to be Karubuspor, put on the table.

“Manyama had an offer from a Turkish side. I’m not happy with the offer. We have to wait and see whether they will come with something better or not. He is a quality player, and he should be transferred at the right price,” Comitis said.

Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns are said to have not given up on their pursuit of the reigning PSL Footballer of the Season.

Comitis, however, has made it clear he won’t sell him to any PSL side.

“I won’t sell Manyama to a local team. In fact, there are no offers for Manyama in South Africa. Even if there were any, I don’t have any intentions of selling Manyama locally,” concluded Comitis.
