Mamelodi Sundowns have decided against loaning out 19-year-old midfielder Flavio Bento despite the unlikelihood of him playing this season.
Bento joined Sundowns after spending a few years at Academica de Coimbra in Portugal towards the end of last season and was set for a loan move away from Chloorkop to get more game-time.
However, coach Pitso Mosimane seems to be very impressed with the youngster and has decided to keep him.

Sundowns official Thulani Thuswa confirms to KickOff.com that the South African-born player will be staying with Brazilians.
"No, Bento will be staying with us and won't be going on loan," Thuswa says.
The former Jomo Cosmos youth player was part of the Sundowns team that took part in a pre-season tournament in Cape Town.
