The 12 Biggest PSL Deals This Window

Which Transfers Were The Biggest In The PSL This Window?

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 01, 2017 04:34 PM

There were a number of transfers that took place within South Africa during the last few months, but which have been the biggest?

We've seen loan deals, permanent moves and free transfers, with every single club in the country bolstering their side in some position or another, and the Siya crew took a look at those that could be considered as the most exciting of the window.

Read: Ajax's Multi-Million Coetzee Payday

Yazid Atouba – AS Vita to Maritzburg
Maritzburg snapped the 24-year-old Cameroon international up as a deadline day deal from AS Vita. He scored against Mamelodi Sundowns in July. Formerly of Chicago Fire in the MLS.

Daylon Claasen – 1860 Munich to Wits
'Daykie' is back in South Africa after many years in Europe, with the Clever Boys grabbing him as a free transfer following his exit from 1860 Munich. He has since returned to the Bafana Bafana setup.

Rivaldo Coetzee – Ajax to Sundowns
It didn't look like Coetzee was going to be in South Africa this season after an almost move to Celtic in Scotland, however, Sundowns brokered a R10m deal before the transfer window closed.

Amr Gamal – Al Ahly to Wits
The first ever Egyptian to play in the Absa Premiership, Gamal comes with a big name and from a big club after joining Wits on loan from Al Ahly. He comes with CAF Champions League experience and is an Egyptian international.

George Lebese – Chiefs to Sundowns
The boy from Mamelodi is back in Mamelodi. Pitso Mosimane has been a big fan of Lebese's for a long time, and he's finally gotten hold of him. Has already scored his first goal for the club.

Oupa Manyisa – Pirates to Sundowns
Another long-term target of Mosimane's is now at Chloorkop. He's featured regularly since his arrival and was a big-name move after Masandawana pinched the Orlando Pirates captain from the Buccaneers.

Teko Modise – Sundowns to CT City

One of the biggest names in South African football made his way to the Cape during the off-season, and having had his debut delayed, went on to score on it in his first game under former teammate, Benni McCarthy.

Siphelele Ntshangase – Leopards to Baroka
There was plenty of talk regarding 'Stash' throughout the transfer window, but despite interest from Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits, it was Bakgaga that landed his signature in a deal believed to be worth upwards of R2m.

Ayanda Patosi – Lokeren to CT City
A transfer that caught many off-guard when it was confirmed by the Citizens early in the transfer window. Patosi returns home to South Africa and Cape Town, and already has two goals to his name. He should continue to improve, too.

Steven Pienaar – Sunderland to Wits
One of South Africa's biggest success stories, 'Schillo' came back to South Africa from English Premier League side, Sunderland, returning to the league where he first made his name nearly 20 years ago.

Wayne Sandilands – Sundowns to Pirates
The goalkeeping department at Pirates was much beleaguered last season as they conceded goals throughout their campaign, and the experienced Sandilands coming in - for free - has been a big boost for the club.

Thamsanqa Sangweni – Chippa to Pirates
Sangweni is highly-rated and follows in the footsteps of his brother, Siyabonga, in joining Bucs. He's been on Pirates' wishlist for some time now and Irvin Khoza has now persuaded him to make the move to Parktown.

Who do you think has been the biggest signing of the window?

Aupa Manyesa to Sunflops what a master stroke from this guy.I really salute Manyesa for going to Sunflops when he is about to go on pension!!!!I'm telling all of you here that Aupa Manyesa is not going to start games at Sunflops because he is history.As for George Lebese I think Chiefs got a good deal from his sale for this guy is past his sell by date.very soon he will be on the stands with Aupa Manyesa but I think for them it was a very good financial move to a team that just donate money to everything that use to be good during its time.

I believe Rivaldo will make a big difference in a central defence of Mamelodi Sundowns if it can happens that he play bcs we've been struggling with this position. Welcome to Bafana Ba Style.
