Maritzburg United have confirmed they are still pursuing Mamelodi Sundowns defender Abel Mabaso as they bid to continue strengthening their squad ahead of the start of the new season.
Maritzburg have been keen on bringing Mabaso back to his home province since the beginning of the month but have been kept on hold by the authorities at Chloorkop.
Farook Kadodia, the United chairman, says they are still chasing the 23-year-old, who spent the past season on loan at Mpumalanga Black Aces.
“It is taking a bit of a while but we are still keen on him (Mabaso) so I would say it is something that is still in the pipeline,” Kadodia tells KickOff.com.
Mabaso has now fallen further down the pecking order at Sundowns for the right-back position which is heavily congested with Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Bryce Moon and new signings Siyanda Zwane and Rheece Evans all aiming to play there.
