Pitso Mosimane on Mamelodi Sundowns’ transfer list

Posted: 10 January 2013 Time: 12:53

Pitso Mosimane says Mamelodi Sundowns are shopping for players, but not from overseas, adding that he wants to keep Katlego Mphela and Teko Modise – and bring back Ramahlwe Mphahlele.

“We are aware of the rumours making rounds about us wanting to sign players left right and centre. We will not be making any wholesale changes, because the only thing we want to do is to strengthen certain key positions, where we feel we are thin,” the coach tells the club’s official website.

“Some reports even link us to some foreign players. This can’t be true because we have exhausted our foreign quota.”

Mosimane says he is looking for a centre-back and a “natural” left winger, “because those are the positions we need to strengthen”.

He adds that the club is also already negotiating contracts with the players he and the technical team have identified to fill the two positions – and that “negotiations are going well”.

“Of course we can't reveal the names of the players we are after because past experience has taught us that such action could compromise a possible deal,” he continues. “All I can say is that the players we have identified were carefully selected based on their abilities and talent.”

Despite University of Pretoria coach Steve Barker telling it is “not possible” for Downs to recall any of the players on loan at the club, during the current transfer window, Mosimane says he would like to do just that.

“I’d love to bring back Ramahlwe Mphahlele, who is currently on loan at Tuks, as he can help us strengthen the defence. Apart from Rama, all the other players on loan will remain there until the end of the season.”

The other players on loan at AmaTuks are Lionel Mtizwa and Buhle Mkhwananzi.

Reports have suggested Edward Manqele, Eleazar Rodgers and Hlompho Kekana could be out in the cold at Chloorkop, but Mosimane insists they will not be loaned out, although other players – not including Modise and Mphela, may be.

“Manqele had some injury problems, which also affected his fitness, but I'm glad that all is sorted. There has been no question about Hlompho and Eleazar's part in the team and they remain key to my plans.

“There are some of those few players who have not enjoyed regular game-time with us, and I feel it will only be fair to loan them to clubs where they will play regular football.

"We want to keep Teko Modise and Katlego Mphela, and I know that they want to stay with us as well.”

Zvasiya is for sale, he is good e left wing and right back, so you get one for two positions for the price of one! But there is no money back if you play him at centre-back..

Manqele was told to lose weight, and now he's been suffering from injuries, i just wonder he's not regretting ever joining Sundowns, but then again he made his own bed, let him comfortably lay there

How do u buy a player for 5 million and only to score three goals. Swapping Moriri and Daniels for Billiat is just a waste of money by Motsepe instead he should invest on improving Tranning Facilities.Two players plu 10 M.
