Mayambela’s Chippa Move Off
11 January 2013
Mark Mayambela’s proposed move to Chippa United has been cancelled after the Chilli Boys decided that they didn’t want him on just a short-term basis.
It had been thought that the 25-year-old was on the brink of signing, however a source close to the Cape Town-based outfit has confirmed to the Siya crew that the deal has now been called off.
Mayambela has undergone a tough time during his spell with Pirates and has not been given the game time that he desires, something that prompted Chippa to make an offer for the midfielder.
While a six-month loan was originally believed to have been agreed, it has now been revealed that Chippa wanted the player on a long-term basis, something that Mayambela was not keen on.
According to the source Mayambela saw Chippa as too small a club for him, and was not prepared to commit to them on a permanent basis.
The source explained, “The club wanted Mayambela on a three-year deal, however he only wanted to come for six months, he wants a bigger contract with Chiefs when his Pirates deal runs out.”
Mayambela’s future now hangs in limbo once again, with him unlikely to break into Roger de Sa’s set up between now and June, when his contract expires.
