Sundowns set to make shock signing?

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns appear set to make a surprise signing of a player that was recently unveiled by Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.

TTM unveiled 22 new signings in a squad of 28 on Thursday as the likes of Justin Shonga, Augustine Mulenga and Brian Onyango were announced by president Lawrence Mulaudzi.

However, as reported on Saturday, Mulenga now appears to be on his way to AmaZulu after being left out of the squad for TTM's first match against SuperSport United in the MTN8 on Saturday.

It looks like the trouble at TTM is far from over as the top-flight debutants named only two in-field substitutes for the 3-2 defeat at Thohoyandou Stadium, raising further suspicions.

KickOff.com has now gathered that Kenyan defender Onyango faces the possibility of not being part of TTM this season and is rumoured to be on his way to join Sundowns.

According to a source close to Sundowns, the 26-year-old is set to go for medicals at Chloorkop on Monday with the intention to sign for The Brazilians.

"The deal between TTM and Onyango has fallen through and he could join Mamelodi Sundowns," says the source, who also confirms the Mulenga to Usuthu rumours.

TTM's new communications and marketing manager Livhuwani Madzuhe tried to explain why the club only managed to name 14 players in their squad for their first PSL match.

"We did our best to assemble the type of players we wanted for this season, we had to start from scratch," Madzuhe told the media on Saturday.

"We would have been happy to have more on the bench but we had a few outstanding documents to register.

"We have a few players on assessment with all documents to be registered available immediately but we have not decided to sign them and the biggest mistake was going to be to sign players due to desperation.

"We have confidence in all the players that were on the team sheet."
