The defender was club captain when Tuks were relegated in 2016 and featured in 21 league appearances this past season as the University team finished 12th on the NFD table under Shaun Bartlett.

“Sbusiso Mthethwa is on his way to Platinum Stars as of next month as his contract expires at the end of this month with Tuks,” a source tells KickOff.com.

“The player has also removed himself from the [Pretoria University] players' Whatsapp group.”
