Collapsed Deal! A Downs Exit That Failed

Up until the last few hours of transfer deadline day on Monday, forward Promise Mkhuma was on the verge of joining SuperSport United on loan.

But the Siya crew has it on good authority that his potential move from crosstown rivals Mamelodi Sundowns for the remainder of the season collapsed because the two clubs couldn’t see eye to eye on the terms of the agreement.

Mkhuma was desperate to get game time elsewhere, as confirmed by his agent Mike Makaab to Soccer Laduma in December ahead of the registration window opening.

Indications are that Cape Town City were also keen on the player’s services as far back as the start of the season, a move that also collapsed!

The 21-year-old junior international has struggled for game time for some time now at Chloorkop, although both co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena have spoken highly of his potential.

But the club can’t seem to nail down a loan move for the player, whose contract is only going to expire in June 2025.

It’s believed talks dragged on until the final hours of the transfer window two days ago with SSU pushing for the player to cross over to the other half of Tshwane along with left back Sifiso Ngobeni, the ex-Bloemfontein Celtic player who has now joined Matsatsantsa for the remainder of the season.

Mkhuma’s loan deal was also meant to be short-term, but the Siya crew understands that SSU would have wanted to buy him outright at some point – in the end there was no agreement between the two parties and hence the deal fell flat!

Below is the list of Downs players that were loaned out at the start of the season.
