Royal Eagles swoop for Walter Maponyane

Posted: 13 August 2014 Time: 12:25

Ambitious First Division club Royal Eagles have agreed terms with Mamelodi Sundowns for the permanent transfer of Walter Maponyane.

This latest development paves way for the former South Africa youth international defender to finally leave Chloorkop.

Maponyane has spent the past two years out on loan – first at United FC and then at Chippa United – but will now be heading out on a permanent basis and is expected to link up with his new teammates before Friday.

“In principle it is a done deal. We have agreed personal terms with the player and we have also agreed on a transfer fee with Sundowns for an outright move. We are really excited that we will be having a player of his calibre in our team,” says an official at Eagles.

Eagles are also closing in on sealing the acquisition of Orlando Pirates back-up goalkeeper Thabang Khasu.

Good luck to maponyane.while I'm KBY but there are players which dumitru said were ready for the big team which lacked basics.I remember him and mabaso coming with lots of energy but their final ball were wayward.this is a regular concern of hunt as well with psl players but should be a concern to dumitru and others who think players are ready and go all out to criticise coaches for not giving players a chance rightly so if they have mastered that though.

Most of the bloggers do not understand what contract entail. A contract is an obligation between two parties. For a footballer to be release on his contract ammicable, the footblaller should be in good terms with their employer Or at least should negotiote with the employer. In the case were the footballer is unfairly treated there are proper chanels to seek help for example approaching DC is another avenue available not the media. Thats why there is CCMA.

If the employer fires the employee, Centainly the employee have a recourse for unfair dismasal. The same recourse is also available to the employer if the employee decide not to honour the contact. Unfortunately most of our players are ill adviced by their managers or agent.

It's a pity to see this boy (Manqele) destroying his future. He is pratical doing it on his own. For those who have half a brain they will understand what I'm referring too. There is no truth on saying sundowns destroys players career. If a player behave like a proffessional sundowns will always help the player to move on if the coach at sundowns has no plans for that player.

Remember thess players, when they come to sundowns there are always highly priced and when they do not make the cut they start mourning forgotting that it was their greed that made them sign long term contract with just to secure their future. A good example of players acting proffessional are Mapuru, Mamponyanye and many more who have move to other clubs without difficult. Manqele must act like proffessional and will be treated like one. Not pre madonna

True topdog and most bloggers don't know that players have to agree if he wants to go to a team he is loaned to.those players who feel the kitchen is too hot and run away from competition they can agree with a club which wants him on loan.
