Stars And Sundowns In Rakhale Race

News reaching the Siya crew is that Free State Stars and Mamelodi Sundowns are keen to sign Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabo Rakhale.

“Stars are really serious about signing Thabo and they have already inquired about his availability, but as you know, he is still contracted to Pirates,” said a source close to Rakhale.

“I don’t think Pirates will prevent his move to Stars, but I think they will have a problem with selling him to Sundowns. Remember that in 2012 both Sundowns and Pirates were interested in him. Pirates won the race, only for them to send him on loan to Sivutsa. That’s why I’m saying a move to Sundowns is unlikely,” added the source.

The 24-year-old midfielder spent last season on loan at Polokwane City, where he made 22 league appearances and scored two goals for Rise and Shine in the 4-2 loss to SuperSport United in May.

Rakhale is expected to report to Pirates during the first season if the move to Stars or Sundowns failed to materialise.
