KickOff.com has learnt that Mamelodi Sundowns recently called Black Leopards chairman David Thidiela to enquire about striker Rodney Ramagalela, but the latter is staying put.
The 24-year-old has reportedly been on Orlando Pirates’ radar, but Bucs’ interest has since waned.
“At the time when the Pirates issue was revealed I think it was motivated by the fact that Ramagalela was going to be out of contract at the end of this season, but midway through the first round Ramagalela and Humphrey Khoza renewed their contracts,” a Leopards official reveals.
“Since then the Pirates issue went quiet. What I know is that Sundowns called the chairman to ask about Ramagalela, but even if he leaves it can’t be in this transfer window. The manager [Sam Khaphathe] saw a striker from Roses United, who he thought could be a good replacement but nothing happened there.
“So if we consider a deal for Ramagalela, it will have to be at the end of the season,” he adds.
