Mamelodi Sundowns to allow Kwanda Mgonyama to leave

Mamelodi Sundowns are set to allow defender Kwanda Mngonyama to leave the club again this season, with his destination likely to be Maritzburg United again.
Mngonyama appears not to be in coach Pitso Mosimane's plans once again, with the 21-year-old now pleading to be allowed to leave yet after spending the past two years on loan at BidVest Wits and Maritzburg, where has totalled 52 starts in those two season.
Sundowns currently have four central defenders in Thabo Nthethe, Mario Booysen, Wayne Arendse and Ramahlwe Mphahlele contending for the centre-back positions.
The youth international has been left to train seperately at Chloorkop as he awaits the fate of his immediate future.
Information coming from Chloorkop is that the club will be allowing all players not in the club’s plans to leave so that they can be afforded game-time elsewhere as per the club president, Patrice Motsepe’s request.
The Team of Choice feel they have made a good enough offer to acquire the defender on a permanent transfer, however, the final decision on Mgonyama's future rests with Sundowns management.
The delay in the finalisation of Mngonyama’s move to Maritzburg is believed to be because The Brazilians are hoping to use him as bait for two transfer targets at other clubs.
Mngonyama is a key member of the national under-23 squad that has qualified for the CAF Under-23 Championships, which double up as the qualifiers for the 2016 Olympic Games.
