As reported by the Siya crew, the young centre-back turned down an opportunity to sign a long-term contract with Sundowns last year in favour of playing regular first team football with Tuks where he has been enjoying himself this season, while at the Brazilians he had been playing for the DStv Diski Challenge team.

Bucs are believed to be considering luring towering defender by offering him a first team contract to strengthen their defence.
