SA Youth International Pens First Pro Deal
South African youth international, Nelson Maluleke, will finally get his chance to shine at senior level, landing himself a contract in the Premier Soccer League.
The 20-year-old midfielder worked his way through the youth ranks at SuperSport United as he was growing up, representing his country at several levels over the years, however, has never been given the opportunity to make his first team debut.
Now, after opting against a move to Romania, the Siya crew has been informed that the youngster has penned a contract with National First Division side, TS Sporting, following their promotion to South Africa’s second tier.
Siya sources have revealed that the former Matsatsantsa man has penned a two-year deal with Sporting with an option to extend in 2020, and he will now be hoping to try and secure his senior debut as soon as possible.
Maluleke was linked with a move to Romanian Ligue 1 team, Voluntari FC, although he ultimately decided that being back in South Africa was the right move for him at this point in his career.
