The Siya crew previously broke the story of Highlands’ top-flight status being sold to TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi pending ratification from the league.

The deal would exclude three of the Tembisa outfit’s big-name players in Mothobi Mvala and Peter Shalulile as well as Luckyboy Mokoena, who have been courted by Mamelodi Sundowns. 

Currently, 35-year-old Lindo­kuhle Mbatha has been pivotal for Owen Da Gama’s team and could be the next player to leave the club.

Mbatha has contributed eight assists in the 32 matches in which he has featured, despite not having opened his goalscoring account for Owen da Gama’s side.

These perform­ances by the former Mamelodi Sun­downs winger have not gone unnoticed and, according to reliable sources, a few Premier Soccer League outfits are taking note. 

“There are teams who want the player. AmaZulu FC and Golden Ar­rows both want the boy,” a source told the Siya crew.

Mbatha, who has been with the Lions of the North since joining them from Sundowns in 2016, signed a two-year deal with the Tembisa outfit in 2019. The player has one year left on his deal with Highlands and could well stay on with Galaxy next season. 

However, it is understood that the player is keen on staying on in Johannesburg, with his business interests and properties in the province. It remains to be seen how the sale of the club to Tim Sukazi could affect his im­mediate future.
