Shabba, as Tshabalala is fondly known is said to be interested in what Swallows have to say but a Phakaaathi source said monetary demands might scupper any deal.
“Shabba will not come cheap and that is a fact. So we know we have to tread carefully because we don’t need a situation where other players will be uncomfortable knowing that there is this one player who is on a big salary,” said the source.
But the club is said to also be interested in Shabba, because he could be the draw card that brings the supporters back to Dobsonville Stadium in big numbers.
