Platinum Stars midfielder, Lindokuhle Mbatha and Mamelodi Sundowns have agreed personal terms and the midfielder will play for the Brazilians next season.
According to sources close to the player, Mbatha and Sundowns have reached a contract agreement and Sundowns will make an announcement about him soon.
“The deal has been concluded and all that is left is for Sundowns to make an announcement,” said the source.
Early last week, the Siya crew reported that Sundowns and Stars had agreed to a fee for the player, and that it was down to the player whether he makes the move or not.
Now the crew has been informed by a source close to the player that Mbatha has agreed personal terms with Sundowns and will turn out for the Brazilians in the 2014/15 campaign.
Mbatha’s agent, Mandla Mthembu, could not confirm nor deny if his player has signed for Sundowns.
“All I confirm is that Mbatha won’t be playing for Platinum Stars next season. As for where he’ll be playing, we have an agreement with the club to wait for them to make an announcement on the matter before I can comment on it,” Mthembu told the crew.
