The news of the transfer broke yesterday, when Sunderland announced they are willing to cancel the remainder of Saha’s contract as the player is unhappy at the club.
Black Cats manager Martin O’Neill said “I have heard that there is some interest in South Africa for Louis and it might be of some interest to him.”
Former Super Eagles media officer, and current SuperSport pundit, Idah Peterside tweeted a few minutes ago: “Just met Louis Saha at the airport, what is he doing here, Sunderland just told him to leave, we hear Sundowns FC, don't say I told you.”
The player himself tweeted yesterday: “It is time to turn left or right for me. Huge corner.”
