Very few Absa Premiership teams are ever more busy than Kabo Yellow in the transfer window - especially the catching of very big fish on pre-contracts lately.
Pitso Mosimane has two top midfield talents coming in the form of George Maluleka from Kaizer Chiefs and Grant Margeman from Ajax Cape Town. There’s also higher numbers and serious talent on loan around the country.
However, as the Chloorkop parking lot gets fuller and the checkbook list grows too long, the time will arrive for some players to move on…
Here are five of the players you can expect to leave at the end of the season…
The 35-year-old goalkeeper has only made 10 appearances and with the club having signed the talented Jody February from Ajax Cape Town and reportedly wanting Maritzburg United’s Richard Ofori, it will be a surprise to see Mweene at Chloorkop next season.
Suffering the misfortune of lengthy injuries is one thing, but getting them while you were already struggling to get into the team leaves very little hope. The 31-year-old Manyisa’s high-profile move from Orlando Pirates has resulted in 47 games in almost three seasons. Plus Maluleka and Margeman are coming.
The former Free State Stars midfielder has been a forgotten figure for nearly three seasons. He has never come anywhere near the likes of Hlompho Kekana, Tiyani Mabunda, Andile Jali and Rivaldo Coetzee.
Having arrived from Polokwane City last season, the lanky footballer has found the central midfield competition a hard one. Only five appearances this season requires a loan move come the new season.
Ngoma is another former Player of the Season nominee who became a forgotten figure in Tshwane. The speedy left-winger cannot go a third season failing to start at least 10 games.
Other players who are unlikely to return from loan:
- Jeremy Brockie
- Katleho Oltadisa.
There's no discussions over how much talent there is in the above list and therefore one or two clubs will stand to benefit greatly.
Sundowns, like many businesses around the world, has good relations with certain brands. So don't be surprise when a few of the players above move to Ajax and Rhulani Mokwena's Chippa United.
