Leopards take six off transfer list

Leopards take six off transfer list

Posted: 23 July 2008 Time: 10:59 am

Relegated Black Leopards have done an about turn and re-instated six players whom they had initially put on the transfer list.

Defender Mayasisilua Lubanzadio, midfielders Hlompho Kekana, Jabulani Maluleke, Christopher Netshidzivhe, along with strikers Mulondo Sikhwivhilu and Walter Ramulondi are, according Lidoda Duvha Brand Manager Tshifhiwa Thidiela, now back in the team.

Thidiela said that management had taken the decision after much consideration even though there were numerous enquiries about the six that they planned to let go.

He denied that the price tag placed on the players was too high and that is why there were no takers.

“It is not true; we were only asking what we thought they were worth. Clubs were under the impression that we did not want them, whereas we knew they were great value in the First Division and believed that PSL clubs would also want their services. But the offers were far less and we did not even entertain listening to them.”

Thidiela said that both Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United were keen on Maluleke while Supersport United were interested in Kekana.

“There were also enquiries about Netshidzivhe, but did not see them as serious.

“Unlike David Makgale and Thabiso Hlalele whom we have given free clearances, we will these player in our First Division campaign in an attempt to return to the Premier League.”

Makgale was involved in protracted negotiations with Leopards’ chairman David Thidiela before he was issued with his clearance.

The 30-year-old is unlikely to find it difficult to clinch a move. He is a versatile player suited to playing on the left or in the centre of the field behind strikers.

Hey, I wanna find out what came of the report by kickoff that Myron Shongwe has signed a 3 year deal with Pirates? I t has never been confirmed by pirates. Does Kickoff still stand by that report? Does anybody know because i'd be very happy if he indeed joined pirates. Is it true?
