It seems that Free State Stars are set to lose their goalkeeper and captain, Kennedy Mweene, with his agent revealing that the player is ready for a new challenge.
There has been much speculation surrounding the future of the shot-stopper in recent months, with Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns, and Platinum Stars all said to be keen on acquiring his services.
Ryan Hartslief, of Bigtime Sports Management, explained to the Siya crew that he has met with the player and discussed his future, with the 28-year-old revealing that he is eager to take the next step in his career.
“I’ve had a long talk with Kennedy and he’s informed me that he thinks that it’s time to take the next step in his career and is ready to move on from Free State Stars after many happy years there. However, he wants a new challenge, and a new home," said Hartslief.
Hartslief explained that the club will deduce their own valuation of the player. He added, “There is the general market price for a keeper of Mweene's calibre, however Free State Stars will conclude there own transfer price."
However, according to a Soccer-Laduma source, Ea Lla Koto will only sell Mweene should the right offer be tabled, and it is thought that their valuation of the player stands between R2.5 and R4 million.
Mweene has missed just ten games in all competitions for Steve Komphela’s side this season and even managed to get on the scoresheet against Black Leopards, in what could have been his last game for the club.
