An experienced defender is on the verge of joining a new club in Gauteng after parting ways with Black Leopards.
Following his sudden exit from Lidoda Duvha, Pentjie Zulu has been expected to sign with neighbours Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila after he was spotted at the club.
However, as confirmed by the player’s representative from Rush Hour Sports Management Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi, negotiations with TTM broke down and the 30-year-old is now looking elsewhere for his next deal.
“There has been interest in the player, and he was recently training with TTM after leaving Black Leopards. We had been in negotiations with TTM about a new contract, but we couldn’t reach an agreement. The club could not meet our terms for the player's services, and we have since moved on,” said Mulovhedzi.
Sekhukhune United, one of the clubs vying for automatic promotion to the DStv Premiership this season, have welcomed the player to their training with a view to add him to their formidable squad under coach Macdonald Makhubedu.
Contacted for comment, Babina Noko CEO Jonas Malatji confirmed the player’s arrival for training with the team.
“We invited him for training and the technical team is having a look at him and a decision will be made by the end of the week,” confirmed Malatji.
Sources close to the club have confirmed that the left-back has impressed and that a short-term deal until the end of the season is likely to be finalised between the parties.
