Downs Conclude Ralani Deal!

Surprise Ralani is expected to become a Mamelodi Sundowns player when the transfer window opens next month, the Siya crew can reveal.

The Cape Town City attacker is understood to have agreed terms with the reigning DStv Premiership champions with a fee paid to the Mother City outfit for the move to go through.

Indications are that Ralani, despite being 34, will play a crucial role at Downs and offer them an added advantage with his experience in the second half of the campaign.

Sundowns are now firm favourites to clinch the league title for a fifth consecutive season and strengthen their tight grip on the trophy following Friday night’s 4-1 mauling of Orlando Pirates to enjoy a remarkable 18-point lead at the summit.

And this with only 17 games played.

“Yes, this deal has been kept under wraps for a while. But Surprise Ralani is joining Mamelodi Sundowns in January and City are already looking for a replacement to cover them when the window opens,” said a source at City privy to the details of the transfer.

Ralani, a product of Farouk Khan’s famed Stars of Africa Academy, played in Sweden and Denmark from 2009 until 2018 when he joined City.

He has invaluable experience, but at his age there will be questions after Sundowns appeared to be offloading a lot of their old guard like captain Hlompho Kekana, Wayne Arendse, Tiyani Mabunda, Anthony Laffor and Tebogo Langerman.

Soccer Laduma has been informed that the two clubs will only likely make the announcement in January when the registration window reopens, although Downs co-coach Rulani Mokwena hinted to the media earlier this week that the club had made a massive signing that they will only unveil when the time is right.

Ralani has been a regular for coach Eric Tinkler this season with 16 appearances in all competitions, two goals and two assists.
