PSL transfer news: Sundowns to launch January bids for Platinum Stars pair Gumede and Mpeta

Posted: 15 December 2014 Time: 10:44

Mamelodi Sundowns are threatening to raid Platinum Stars for the services of Luvolwethu Mpeta and Tshepo Gumede in the January transfer window.

The pair are out of contract at the end of the season, with Gumede also being linked to Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

And according to a source close to both men, Downs are poised to launch an official offer for the defenders.

"Sundowns are trying to do everything to sign both players and are set to officially present the offers in January," says the source.

Stars boss Ratanang Nke, however, expressed confidence that Mpeta and Gumede will commit to new deals in Rustenburg.

"We not aware of any interest and it will be unethical of teams to approach our players when they still have contract with the team," Nke tells

"We have already engaged both players for new contracts and we are confident they will stay with the club next season," he adds.

On the Dolly article, the Sundowns source wasn't mentioned but Ajax CEO Ari is quoted directly in the rebuttal, same with this story, Sundowns source not named but Stars boss is quoted directly in the rebuttal?.

I hope most idiots who'll come here and post usual drivel about "Signclowns" engage their brains first.

Skhomo23 Read the article again and then your comment, after that explain what makes you think the source is from Sundowns...??

"And according to a source close to both men".. My understanding is the source is close to both Gumede and Mpeta.

Ibhola Lethu Skhomo23 You are thick as 2 planks put together!!, there's an unnamed source inferred by Kick-Off, where would the "source" close to both men get the idea that Sundowns wants these players?, clearly there's an unnamed person from Sundowns inferred here, you've made my point and that of Baxter about your stupidity.

Skhomo23 Even with Manqele they said an UNNAMED Sundowns official has confirmed he was given free clearance if he was given free clearance why is he not registered with PSL and has to wait for January transfer window? Why are our officials always unnamed if the story is true but for other teams are always mentioned?

To show that kickoff was HELL bent on putting Sundowns in a bad light, after it was confirmed that he has moved to Chippa they said he scored a winning goal in a subsequent match but last week they said he is unregistered and is unhappy at Chippa.

Ngqondo Skhomo23 On point my bro, on the Mashamaite article, I asked why hasn't Kick-Off made a headline from Baxter calling Chiefs fans idiots, imagine if Pitso had called us idiots when we were booing earlier on at the start of the season, instead Pitso said he respected our views regardless of how misdirected they were but Baxter calls Chiefs fans idiots and that doesn't make a Kick-Off headline WTF!!!
