Greek giants Olympiacos have been joined by French Ligue 1 club Montpellier in their race to sign Mamelodi Sundowns star Keagan Dolly.

Dolly, 23, has been subject of interest for Al Ahly but it was previously revealed that the player has no interest in joining the Cairo giants.

South Africa Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) have earlier on Monday ruled in favor of the Brazilians over Keagan Dolly for the case of his transfer with a source confirming to KingFut that the player’s representatives will take Sundowns to SAFA.

“Regarding Dolly’s case, his first contract had a buyout clause of £1.5 million. Following his return from a loan move to Ajax Capetown, the player signed a new deal where the club had made amendments to nine other clauses including the buyout fee,” a source tells KingFut.

“In his new deal, Sundowns made a mistake to set his buyout clause at €733k, thus changing currency and figure. Downs changed nine other clauses as well but that was the only one in favor of the player so he agreed to sign the new deal.

“Despite Olympiacos matching the new buyout clause, Sundowns told player to revert to old contract because an “official made a mistake”.

“Olympiacos tabled a new bid last Saturday & Montpellier have as well at a value of €1.5M for Keagan Dolly but now the club president stands firm at new valuation of €1.7M which is not in any contract.

“It is a mess, the DRC had told both parties that they can stick to the new contract but just abide by that clause from the first contract regarding the buyout fee. How does this make any sense?”

Keagan Dolly will now take the club to FIFA but one step remains before he can do so.

“We’ll have to go to SAFA first but if that doesn’t work, we’ll go to FIFA. Sundowns know they’re going to lose the case,” he concluded.
