BULAWAYO football giants Highlanders put a "sale on clause" on the deal that saw their youngster Prince Dube sign for Pretoria-based Absa Premiership side Supersport United on Tuesday evening.

Dube (20) joined Supersport United on a four-year deal reportedly worth between $80 000 and $120 000.

"After Prince successfully did his medicals on Tuesday, Supersport decided to swiftly sign the player and as such we consider him an exit. The club is glad that the player has made a move and we have witnessed a commercial reality.

"However, his transfer was not a once off. There is an open sale on clause in the contract. This means whenever the player makes a move from Supersport to another club, Highlanders is rest assured of financial benefits," said Bosso chief executive officer Nhlanhla Dube.

Former Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions Chicken Inn recently became a victim of a sale -on -clause after Mpumalanga Black Aces failed to honour the agreement they had when Tendai Ndoro moved to South Africa four year ago.

Ndoro's former side - Chicken Inn - were seeking a payout from Mpumalanga Black Aces for the player's transfer to Orlando Pirates.

The local league's outfit had to go to Fifa in order to try and recover 30 percent of Ndoro's transfer fee they claimed Aces did not pay.

Nicknamed Gamecocks, Chicken Inn sold Ndoro to Aces in 2013 following a successful season with the club as he finished as the top goals scorer on the local scene.

The Bulawayo side claimed that a clause in the player's Aces contract stated that they would receive 30 percent of Ndoro's future move within a five-year period.

Aces sold their status to John Comitis who named his new club Cape Town City at the start of the season. After the South African Football Association (Safa) proved unable to assist them, Chicken Inn were compelled to take their matter to Fifa but with no joy.

Dube also revealed that the broker of the deal was the Harare-based player agent Gibson Mahachi.

"It seems a number of our players; especially those that have been with the national team now have managers.

Gibson Mahachi is Prince Dube's manager and he was the guy behind his move to Supersport. Edelbert Dinha is the manager to our left back Honest Moyo," said Dube.
