Having spent more than 14 years in Brazil, ‘the South African Sirino’ who left Mzansi shores as an 11-year-old through the now-defunct Shona Kona competition is linked with a sensational move to the PSL.
The Siya crew understands that 25-year-old attacker Tyroane Sandows is keen on a return to Mzansi, after leaving his former club Ponte Preta and is available on a free transfer, with a host of PSL teams keeping a keen eye on his situation.
The Johannesburg-born star’s Brazilian journey started off with Sao Paolo's youth academy in 2007, and he has gone on to feature for the senior teams of likes of Gremio- where he spent time with Juventus-bound FC Barcelona star Artur Melo- as well as Figueirense- Ronaldinho’s first club. He also teamed up with Tottenham Hotspur ace Lucas Moura at Sao Paolo.
The ambidextrous attacker who can play as a number 10 or on either wing, is believed to be in the mould of Mamelodi Sundowns star Gaston Sirino, although he packs more pace than the Uruguayan - who has certainly stamped his influence on the Chloorkop outfit.
Contacted for comment, the player’s father Joe, who is also in charge of his affairs, confirmed that there is firm interest from South Africa, although he remained tight-lipped on potential suitors
“Look there have been talks with a few potential PSL teams. He is available on a free and there have been an approach for his services from teams, which we cannot disclose right now. We are looking at different options without rushing into anything.
“We are looking for a team that will suit a player with his type of quality. The player is in the country at the moment so he will be free to join any club of his choice,” Sandows senior told the Siya crew.
