SOUTH African premiership side, University of Pretoria, have opened up negotiations regarding the extension of goalkeeper Washington Arubi’s contract.
Arubi is in the last year of his contract with the capital club, which is in fact an optional year on his contract that was exercised by the club, as penned in the deal which saw him join in 2012.
Now having played 96 of the 99 games that Tuks have played since his arrival in the club’s debut season in top-flight football, the 29-year-old’s value has grown as he now holds the record for most appearances in the club’s short history in the PSL.
Michael Hughes of MSC Sports, who represent the player, confirms that negotiations have started.
“We have started negotiations with Tuks with regards to extending Arubi’s contract with the club which is in its last year,” says Hughes.
Arubi kept eight clean sheets in the 29 League matches he played last term as Tuks finished 13th in the Absa Premiership standings.
