Mamelodi Sundowns have sent some of their players out on loan for the season and there are a few who are already standing out at the clubs they have joined.
With so much quality in the team, Sundowns have given players who had very little chance of breaking into the starting line-up this season an opportunity to go elsewhere to play week in and out. There are those who are already taking the opportunity with both hands.
Phakamani Mahlambi bagged his first goal for Chippa United in the 3-1 defeat to Soweto giants Orlando Pirates over the weekend. He is not the only player on loan to Chippa from Sundowns.
Sammy Seabi was out on loan to Swallows last season and it looked as though he would be heading back there for this campaign, but a move to the Dube Birds did not materialise and, as a result, he ended up joining Chippa. Siphesihle Mkhize, the 22-year-old who has previously been loaned out to Ajax Cape Town by Sundowns, has now made three appearances for the Chilli Boys this season.
There are a few other Sundowns players who are on loan to clubs in the DStv Premiership and GladAfrica Championship.
