Downs Keeper Wanted For Permanent Switch?
Sundowns Goalkeeper Wanted For Stars Switch
News reaching the Siya crew is that Free Stars want to keep their on-loan keeper from Mamelodi Sundowns beyond the current season.
Ngobeni, who made his first appearance for Stars last night to mark his return to the Bethlehem-based club, had been a transfer target for some time.
The shot-stopper is spending his second loan stint with Stars. He was loaned to the club from Downs in January.
“Free State Stars are keen on signing Thela Ngobeni from Sundowns on a permanent deal. The club want him and Badra Ali Sangare to compete for the number position in Luc Eymael’s team,” said the source.
Ngobeni’s loan deal with Stars will run until the end of the season. At the end of the current season, the 29-year-old will be left with one year on his existing deal with Sundowns.
