Siya sources have informed the crew that there is a deadline day transfer on the cards for one of Mamelodi Sundowns’ out of favour players.
The Siya crew has had its fingers on the pulse regarding the potential move of Phakamani Mahlambi to AmaZulu, but with time fast running out on transfer deadline day this Monday, it looks like the switch had collapsed!
But it’s understood Downs owner Patrice Motsepe has stepped in to see to it that the attacker does complete the transfer having not yet kicked the ball for the club so far this season and very much deemed surplus to requirements.
Mahlambi joined the reigning DStv Premiership champions two years ago, signing a five-year contract following his R13-million move from Al Ahly, the Egyptian giants he joined from Bidvest Wits.
A lack of game time, however, has meant that he is keen to start afresh elsewhere, albeit on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The Siya crew will update this story as it is expected that AmaZulu could meet the midnight deadline to get the deal over the line.
