The Siya crew has been reliably informed that Thamsanqa Sangweni is wanted not only by Bidvest Wits, but Cape Town City is said to also be keen on his services.

The Siya crew reported that Sangweni was with Wits since yesterday (Thursday), the club’s head coach, Gavin Hunt, later confirmed that the central midfielder is with the club and that a potential deal for him is being negotiated.
A reliable source in the know has confirmed that Cape Town City is also interested in the Dondotha-born player, who previously had a stint with Ajax Cape Town.
While Benni McCarthy’s side has been linked with former Mamelodi Sundowns midfield maestro, Teko Modise, as first reported by the Siya crew in issue number 1020 of Soccer Laduma, the Mother City club is believed to be also keen on Sangweni.
“There have been meetings (with Wits) and the parties have been discussing, but nothing has been finalised.
“What I can tell you though is that even Cape Town City is chasing the player’s signature. Their interest in the player is known to Chippa,” said the source.
Chippa’s CEO, Peter Koutroulis, is in Johannesburg and discussing a potential move for the player to Wits. The negotiations are ongoing and the Siya crew will keep you updated.
