Update: Buhle Mkhwanazi!

Buhle Mkhwanazi looks set to make his return to the Premier Soccer League after spending a full season without a club.

The Siya crew has been led to believe that the defender is now in talks with SuperSport United over a potential deal, with coach Kaitano Tembo keen to have the 31-year-old bolster his squad ahead of the new campaign.

With Bidvest Wits being sold in June last year, Mkhwanazi was not keen on relocating to the club’s new base in Limpopo under the new owners and it was understood there was also a contract standoff between the two parties.

The player was left with one year on his Wits contract, but his now new club, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, could no longer afford his package, forcing the player to seek legal counsel over what next steps to follow.

Indications are that the case is still sitting with the PSL's dispute resolution chamber. 

Now, the Siya crew has it on good authority that SSU are favourites to land Mkhwanazi’s signature in the coming weeks.

There is no rush because the player is a free agent, but indications are that Mkhwanazi has already started training with Matsatsantsa and that Tembo wants him to stay permanently. 

Prior to his decision to sit out an entire season while his dispute with TTM dragged on, the centre back was a regular for Bafana Bafana having been to the Africa Cup of Nations a year before that under then-coach Stuart Baxter.

He was also reportedly on the radar of both Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, but now looks set to join SSU as he makes his comeback.
