Downs Want Bafana Midfielder On Long-Term Deal

Mamelodi Sundowns are interested in tying Themba Zwane on a long-term deal. Zwane is one of the players in Pitso Mosimane’s long-term planning for the future at Chloorkop.  

The midfielder has been playing well, with nine league starts so far in the 2014/15 Absa Premiership season.

Zwane is one of the two Sundowns players that were with Bafana Bafana in Equatorial Guinea for the team’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign earlier this year. The only other Sundowns player that was in Shakes Mashaba’s team at this year’s AFCON was Bongani Zungu.

A Sundowns official, who spoke to the Siya crew on condition of anonymity, revealed that Zwane has been offered a new three-year deal at the Chloorkop outfit.

“After his initial three-year deal expired in 2014, the one-year option on his deal was exercised by the club. They are now offering him another three years.   

“I am not quite sure how far the discussions have gone, but it is looking good because the team wants the player and the player wants to stay. They should reach an agreement soon,” said the source.

In the meantime, the 25-year-old will be working on making his way back to Mosimane’s starting line-up at Downs.

Zwane came on as a second half substitute when Sundowns beat Moroka Swallows 4-1 last week. He was not included in the team for their CAF Champions League game against St Michel United in Seychelles.
