Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) giants AS Vita have reportedly offered to Mbabane Swallows attacking midfielder Felix Badenhorst a two-year contract worth around R700 000.

The Times of Swaziland reports that the Mbabane Swallows striker is set to earn around R30 000 per month at Vita.

“The deal is lucrative for the player, because he is being highly rated here. More than Xavi and on top of the salary (sic), the player will also get a car and good accommodation,” a source told the Swazi website.

Swallows acting CEO Sibusiso Manana confirmed that talks between the two teams were ongoing regarding the player’s transfer.
“Nothing has been finalised yet. We will be in a position to inform the public once everything has been finalised.”

Badenhorst was linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs, but nothing came out of the reported interest.

Few weeks ago, the forward was invited to train with Bloemfontein Celtic but he failed to impress the Siwelele technical team.
