Madosh Tambwe will join Bordeaux in France in July according to his agent who rubbished reports that the wing had issues with his visa.
It was reported that Tambwe’s move to the French club from the Vodacom Bulls could potentially be thrown into jeopardy because French authorities rejected his application for a work visa.
However, Tambwe’s agent, Damien Dussault, said the DRC-born player will definitely be leaving the Bulls and going to France.
“I don’t know where this story is coming from. This is not true at all,” Dussault told the Sowetan.
“When a foreigner gets a work contract in France he automatically gets his visa and work permit. I can confirm Madosh will be in France from July 1 — there is no doubt about that.
“His contract only starts on July 1, so he won’t get a visa from May 1. As a registered worker it goes to the French authorities, then the SA authorities, from where he has to pick up his visa. There is no problem about it.
“The definitive contract has been signed between the club and the player. You sign a pre-contract. Then when the contract season starts you sign the definitive contract. After May 1 the transfer season started here.”
The Bulls on Thursday announced the signing of Springbok wing Sbu Nkosi from the Sharks.
