The Free State club and Moroka Swallows have until the end of the week to complete the takeover and swapping of club identities, otherwise the PSL won’t recognize it in time for the new season.
Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi is the main man getting it done between Stars and Swallows.
“As it stands there is no deal between the two parties, we are still awaiting a report from them,” PSL chairman Irvin Khoza stated.
“If the intention of the trust is to buy the club and seek a name change and that is a matter to be dealt with when the time comes.
“No application has been made and no transaction has been placed before the League.”
“As we speak we don’t know who these people in the trust are. We only know Mr Lesufi,” Khoza continued.
“I spoke to Mr Lesufi and he apologised. I hope they will conclude it this week. Because we can’t wait too long.
“I want to appeal to MEC Lesufi that together with whoever he’s involved with in the consortium to finalise this asap.”
“If we don’t have clarity by the end of the week – there will be no transaction, change of club or anything like that,” he stressed.
“Our position as the League, right now, is that we await a full report from the parties.”
