Confirmed: Downs Star Requests Loan Move

It’s been confirmed to the Siya crew that one of Mamelodi Sundowns’ squad players has requested a loan move before the transfer window deadline.

Jody February is eager to get some regular action and it’s become clear since the start of the 2020/21 season that the keeper won’t get it at Chloorkop.

He is down the pecking order in the goalkeeping department at the club with Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene and Ricardo Goss all ahead of him.

“It has been a little frustrating, though we do understand why they signed Jody,” his agent Mike Makaab from Prosport International explained.

“If you have a look at their top line goalkeepers, they are not getting any younger therefore Ricardo Goss and Jody were brought in. We hope we can find a suitable loan option for Jody, and the club has given us the go-ahead to look for one.”

Onyango (35) and Mweene (36) are usually first and second choice at Downs, respectively, while Goss (26) and February (24) are obviously seen as their long-term replacements – but that doesn’t mean they will accept sitting on the bench.

There is also Reyaad Pieterse, who is 28-years-old. 

“The club didn’t approach us, we approached them, purely because we felt it is important for Jody to get game-time. If we can’t find a club, then he is a professional and he’s got to roll his sleeves up and work hard. His ability will come through because he is a talented goalkeeper,” Makaab told the Siya crew.

February initially signed for Downs in September 2019 from Ajax Cape Town, but was immediately loaned out to Cape Umoya United.

He returned to Chloorkop in October last year and now has a week to find a new home as the transfer window closes on February 15.
