Mamelodi Sundowns have decided against signing Lamla Joyi after the striker trained with the club’s development side last week.
It was revealed by Soccer-Laduma that the 20-year-old was at Sundowns with the hope of securing a deal to be part of the club’s development.
A source close to Sundowns confirmed to the Siya crew that the player will not be joining the club’s development.
Joyi has been playing for Peacemakers FC in the Eastern Cape. A second source close to the player confirmed to the Siya crew that Joyi has left the club.
“I have been told that the boy did well during his trial at Sundowns. He played in some games for their SAFA Second Division side and scored some goals but he isn’t the player that Noel Cousins wants for Sundowns at the moment,” said the source.
