Former Mamelodi Sundowns winger Elias Pelembe will remain in Gauteng next season and is very close to sealing a deal with a top club, says his agent Tim Sukazi.
The Mozambique international is a free agent after not renewing his contract with the Brazilians and has been linked with Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United, with Kaizer Chiefs also an option. Bidvest Wits have ruled themselves out.
Sukazi has confirmed that negotiations with one of the top teams in Gauteng are now at an advanced stage.
“Pelembe is a top, high-level, professional player and he will play in the PSL next season for sure,” he tells KickOff.com.
“Right now we are in high-level discussions with one of the teams in Gauteng but of course I am not at liberty to reveal the people we are talking to.”
Although Sukazi refused to divulge the name of the club, he dropped a hint that the 31-year-old’s next move will be to a Johannesburg team rather than Pretoria.
