The Premier Soccer League executive committee, meanwhile, is set to meet on Thursday to put the whole saga to bed.

Stars issued a statement last Friday declaring that the deal with Lesufi was off, but Khoza said the PSL is not officially aware of such developments.

“I think it is best for me to wait until the meeting of the executive on Thursday because that is where I will be tabled at the meeting,” PSL chairman Irvin khoza told Power FM.

Meanwhile, as reported by Phakaaathi earlier, Royal Eagles owners Sbu and Shauwn Mpisane are said to be looking to buy Free State Stars’ Absa Premiership status after the Lesufi-led consortium failed in their bid.

“The Mpisanes have seen this as a chance for them to get a Premiership spot, which is what they have always longed for. They wanted to qualify for it through the NFD, but if a chance like this presents itself, they are willing to take it,” said a source.

The Mpisanes – who are parents of Itumeleng Khune’s ex-girlfriend Sibahle – are willing to buy Stars and would not change their name nor relocate them before the end of the upcoming season.
