Ajax eye permanent move for Nale



Ajax Cape Town would consider putting in a bid to make Abia Nale’s move from Kaizer Chiefs a permanent one if he continues to show his red hot form.

The winger had taken a while to settle in at the club and only recently returned from a two week knee injury lay off, but his goals for Ajax against Free State Stars and Orlando Pirates in the club’s last two matches have brought renewed focus on his skills.

The 26-year-old Nale, who has won a single cap for Bafana Bafana, was procured by Ajax in the January transfer window from Chiefs on loan.

“We’ve waited a while for him to come to the party and when we went out to play against Stars we made it clear to him that we really needed him to put on a show, which is what he did,’ explained Ajax’s chief executive officer George Comitis.

“He showed in that game what he is capable of and if he goes on and continues to do the business then the board of the club would be blind not to try and take up the chance to keep him on a permanent contract with us,” he added.

Nale scored one goal and made another in the 4-2 win over Stars and also scored the opening goals in the thrilling 2-2 draw with Orlando Pirates last Wednesday.

He is expected to be key again on Tuesday night when Ajax play fellow relegation candidates Black Leopards in Polokwane.
