Dikwena to offer Phala new deal

Platinum Stars are moving fast to extend the services of midfielder Thuso Phala

Platinum Stars are moving fast to extend the services of hard running Bafana Bafana midfielder Thuso Phala, whose contract runs out on June 30.

KickOff.com is reliably informed that Phala – who has played for both Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns – is on the wanted list of Premiership clubs looking to bolster their squads during the current transfer window.

The 26-year-old has been a major driving force for Dikwena this season and his efforts have been rewarded by Bafana coach Gordon Igesund, who roped the attacking midfielder into his 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final squad.

Dikwena media and supporters relations manager Aubrey Molobi tells KickOff.com that Dikwena coach Cavin Johnson is eager to tie Phala to the club beyond the end of his current contract.

"At the moment we are in recess but as soon as we come back from the holidays contract talks will be a major priority," Molobi says.

Molobi adds that Dikwena will also look to extend the contracts of Vuyo Mere, Enocent Mkhabela, Henrico Botes and others players whose contracts expire at the end of the season.

"The coach has indicated that he would like to continue with Phala and all the players we are currently have in the side."

Molobi also poured cold water on reports linking Dikwena to a R2-million bid for the services of exciting Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Joel Mogorosi.

"We will not be buying any players during the transfer window. We have a squad of 33 players and we have done very well with them. We are not after Mogorosi. Why would we need more players?

"We are challenging for the League title and the coach is more concerned with retaining all his players," Molobi says.

khosi fan aka thami: Mthamana, no need to swear bra yami please, i know u excited about the prospect of Phala re-joining your team but dont show it with strong language.

i also do not agree with Barca@10 but a respectful manner.

Chiefs fans are xaking at times, they say Phala is a cow yet they patriotic about BB. How do u expect something from something u dont believe in, we expect them to trust GI and every player he has selected.

Players have tendencies of trying to prove a point against their former teams. Especially when its Chiefs or rats. So whether Phala does well against my team it doesn't change the fact that he is a cow. If Mabena goes en play 4 another team en he scores against bucs he will remain a cow
