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.
