Club captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele is currently locked in negotiations with Mamelodi Sundowns with regards to a new contract with the Chloorkop outfit.
'Rama' has emerged as the team’s leader and has taken over the armband following the departure of former captain, Alje Schut, at the end of last season.
The 25-year-old has been a mainstay in coach Pitso Mosimane’s team and has started every competitive game for the Brazilians so far this season.
With the defender in the last year of his contract, meaning he will be able to negotiate a deal elsewhere come January and move on a free at the end of the season if he should wish to do so, the club have moved to tie him down to a new contract.
Siya sources have revealed that the two parties have entered into negotiations surrounding a new contract, but the two camps have yet to come to a mutual decision.
Do you think Sundowns can manage without Rama or is it imperative they tie him down to a new deal as soon as possible? Which other teams do you think would be interested in his services?
