Mamelodi Sundowns

Downs’ R13m Star To Be Shipped Out?

The list of Mamelodi Sundowns players likely to be leaving Chloorkop before the close of the transfer window is growing by the week.

Phakamani Mahlambi, according to Siya sources, is also now deemed surplus to requirements and – once again – Swallows FC are the frontrunners to land his signature.

It is understood he is still seen as a player that can have a long term future at Sundowns, but needs regular game-time to ensure his career does not stagnate.

The Siya crew reported in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma (issue 1195, published last week), that the Brazilians were believed to be in talks with the Dube Birds over a possible loan deal for the former Bidvest Wits and Al Ahly attacker.

Swallows, who gained promotion to the top flight last month, have been busy in the transfer market strengthening Coach Brandon Truter’s side.

Sammy Seabi has joined them from Sundowns on loan, while Anele Ngcongca, Wayne Arendse and Tiyani Mabunda have also been linked with the Soweto outfit.

Mahlambi joined Downs two seasons ago after spending just one year at Al Ahly following his R28-million transfer fee from Wits to the Egyptian powerhouse.

For his return back to the Premier Soccer League, it was disclosed by Al Ahly that Sundowns forked out R13-million to get him on their books.

Mahlambi, 23, still has three years to run on his contract at Chloorkop and it is likely that a move to Swallows, if it happens, would be on loan.

Played mostly as a substitute, Mahlambi managed 15 appearances during Downs’ treble-winning season.
