Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City are understood to have agreed a figure on the transfer of a striker before today’s deadline!
Promise Mkhuma could possibly move to the Mother City prior to the midnight cut-off time as the youngster looks for regular game-time, though the Siya crew has been led to believe that it would be a loan deal.
The 21-year-old was promoted from the Downs reserve team by then coach Pitso Mosimane in January last year and immediately handed a five-year contract, although he has not seen much playing time since then.
He is no doubt a future prospect for the club and the Brazilians will want him to lead the line at some point, however at the moment he has stiff competition with Pavol Safranko, Kermit Erasmus, Peter Shalulile and Gift Motupa.
Sundowns also have other attacking midfield options like Thabiso Kutumela and Gaston Sirino, who will make it near impossible for the youth international to make the squad regularly this season.
Mkhuma made 16 appearances last season as Downs clinched a record fourth league title, but he is yet to feature in the current campaign.
According to reliable Siya sources, Sundowns have agreed a transfer figure for the loan deal of Mkhuma and it’s thought the ball is now in the Brazilians’ court to make a final decision and hopefully beat the registration deadline, which is midnight!
Contacted for comment, the player’s agent, Mike Makaab of ProSport International, told the Siya crew that the move was unlikely at this stage, though not impossible.
“No one from City has approached us regarding Promise, but we do gather there was some interest. He is a player with immense potential and we would like to see him fight for his place at Sundowns,” said Makaab.
