As reported in edition 1071 of Soccer Laduma, one of the names that have made it into the transfer wish list of the Lions of the North is that of Thela Ngobeni.

Following the confirmation of their return to South Africa’s top-flight after winning the National First Division, the Gauteng-based club are now in the process of preparing for life back in the big time by looking for players to reinforce their squad for next season.

According to Siya sources, the club have identified Ngobeni as a potential signing. The shot-stopper, who is expected back at Mamelodi Sundowns at the end of his loan deal with Free State Stars in June, is wanted for a move to the newly-promoted outfit, should they be able to negotiate with the Brazilians for a deal for his services.

“Highlands Park are interested in signing Thela Ngobeni. The negotiations for a possible move of the player to the club are ongoing. It’s likely to happen,” a source told the Siya crew.

OP should sign this young man, that goalkeeping department (although much better than last season) is of some concern at times

It will be sad to see him go, he deserve to be second choice to Onyango since there is a possibility of Razak leaving.

Chiefs' production. He can fit well at Highlands Park and he will be able to be with his family since he is an East Rand boy.

Pitso is too blind to see such a talent and his even better than Onyango. But the thing I've never heard of a goalkeeper being bought by PSL team except he will leave as free agent. Thela is worth good money

He will earn a "much travelled shot stopper" tag.

That would be the best signing f0r the Li0ns 0f the n0rth,he can be guaranteed a starting p0siti0n at highlands park and with en0ugh game time Thela Ng0beni can make it even at the nati0nal team.and I think leaving sund0wns c0uld be a great decisi0n that team really failed him.
