Bafana Bafana international Andile Jali is close to making his way back to full fitness after recovering from an ankle injury.

However, the midfielder did not make Belgian side KV Oostende’s match day squad as they drew 1-1 away to Zulte Waregem on Saturday. The former Orlando Pirates midfielder has reportedly attracted interest from English side Leeds United, who play in England’s second tier.

Jali would be unlikely to get a work permit to play in Enland, however, because of Bafana Bafana’s lowly world ranking.
