John Comitis explains Rheece Evans failed move to Cape Town City

Posted: 1 September 2016 Time: 00:11

Cape Town City owner John Comitis has explained why a move for Rheece Evans’ move from Mamelodi Sundowns fell through.

Evans was at the PSL offices hoping to make a move to Cape Town to get some game-time this season but the two clubs could not agree on a deal.

“We tried till the last minute to get Rheece Evans on loan but we couldn't agree terms with Sundowns,” Comitis said from the PSL headquarters, with those terms understood to be the length of the deal.

According to sources at the PSL offices, Sundowns would not agree to a season-long loan and only wanted to send him to City for six months. 

City did manage to sign Thato Mokeke from SuperSport United, but parted ways with rising star Aubrey Modiba for that deal to happen.

“We wish Aubrey well at his future club. We couldn't stay in his way,” Comitis added.

Evans, who has fallen even further down the pecking order at Chloorkop following the signing of Anele Ngcongca, will now be stuck at Sundowns until at least January unless the club terminates his contract.
