SOCCER – MBABANE Swallows supporters will have to wait a bit longer before they can see the return of Felix ‘Fela’ Badenhorst from AS Vita Club. The Sihlangu star is still yet to complete his move back to the red and white glamour side from the Kinshasa based side, despite spending the entire pre-season training with Swallows. A source close to the matter asserted that the player’s move back to the ‘Beautiful Birds’ has been stalled by AS Vita’s failure to release the international clearance after Swallows paid a transfer fee reportedly at E250 000. “The player is still out in the cold due to AS Vita’s failure to release his clearance despite receiving the transfer fee about two weeks ago. The matter is also frustrating Swallows but we are positive the deal will be concluded before the end of the week.” The player’s contract with AS Vita is coming to an end in November. Swallows General Manager Sandile Zwane said the player would make his return to the team in their next league match against Tambuti FC this coming Saturday at the Somhlolo National Stadium. “Felix will be available for selection this coming Saturday against Tambuti and I am positive he will play this weekend,” he said. The lanky Sihlangu striker is hoping to make a return to local football circles following his unsuccessful stint with the Florent Ibenge-led side, which saw the player return home before the 2017 COSAFA Cup for unknown reasons. Badenhorst joined Vita in September last year following his impressive showing during last year’s edition of the regional showpiece where he won himself the top goal scorer award after banging in five goals.
