Amazulu were also keen on Wadi but couldn’t agree terms on a transfer fee.

“At that point l heard a lot of rumors about it, the likes of Chiefs and some teams did approach the club, AmaZulu among other teams,” Wadi told Far Post.

“But they [AmaZulu] didn’t reach an agreement with my club JDR Stars. At the moment I’m still contracted with the team till the end of the season but I’m prepared to make a move.

“As players our ambitions constantly change as we develop. Just like everyone in South Africa and back home in Zimbabwe, I hope to play in the PSL.

JDR Stars are fourth in the Motsepe Foundation Championship but still in the race for promotion themselves.

Wadi might be out of contract before the promotion/relegation tournament goes down, if he is still at the NFD outfit beyond the January transfer window.
