Sundowns To Cash In On Millions For Midfielder?

Siya sources have indicated that Sundowns could cash in on millions for one of their midfielders, should a particular club come in for a permanent offer.

Sibusiso Kumalo completed a season-long loan stint to Bidvest Wits on August 30, in hopes of securing regular game-time after falling out of favour at the Chloorkop-based club.

As reported in last week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Siya sources have indicated that Sundowns have agreed to allow Wits the option to buy Kumalo after the end of the 2018/19 season.

Sources have added that Sundowns are believed to be looking at cashing in on up to R4 million for the permanent services of Kumalo.

The 27-year-old is yet to make his debut for Wits, with the domestic campaign resuming action this weekend.

Indications are that Kumalo will come in to add cover following the injury to Granwald Scott that is set to keep him out for several weeks.

However, it seems that the competition in the midfield is just as tight with the Students, as is in the Sundowns setup.

Head Coach Gavin Hunt currently has Kumalo, Scott, Thabang Monare, Edwin Gyimah, Cole Alexander, Bantu Mzwakali, Mxolisi Macuphu, Terrence Dzvukamanja and Sibangakonke Mbatha as choices in all parts of his midfield setup.

Now, it remains to be seen whether Kumalo will make his debut for the log leaders this weekend when Wits face Maritzburg United.
