A Mamelodi Sundowns star is amongst five players whose futures need to be decided by Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhadila.
Earlier this week, the crew revealed that TTM’s Nedbank Cup penalty shoot-out hero Washington Arubi, was not perturbed by his contract situation with the club, despite it coming to an end in June 2021.
Another player who TTM are looking to hold onto beyond the current season is defender Nicholus Lukhubeni.
According to Siya sources, TTM recently opened talks with Lukhubeni’s mother club Mamelodi Sundowns over extending the young defender’s stay in Polokwane, following his massive impact this season. Lukhubeni has made 19 league appearances for coach Dylan Kerr’s side this season, the second most used player behind goalkeeper Washington Arubi.
TTM assistant coach Mpho Maleka recently reiterated his side’s desire to hold onto the marauding right back.
“Nico, yes, he has done much, he has given us a balance on the right and we are happy about his efforts, his play, his attitude and his work ethic and we haven’t started talking about his future with us as much as he is on loan from Sundowns – but the signs are there for all to see that he’s got a chance to stay, so it’s up to the two parties to talk about his future and we believe that things will favour TTM next season,” Maleka told journalists.
Another player that will be hoping he has done enough to earn a contract extension is nomadic striker Tokelo Rantie, who penned a short-term deal with TTM until the end of the season.
Rantie, 30, joined TTM back in February following a two-year football hiatus and to date has made four appearances for the Polokwane-based outfit.
