Deal agreed for new Downs signing

Premiership

KickOff.com has gathered that South African youth international defender Katlego Mohamme will make the switch to Mamelodi Sundowns from University of Pretoria after agreeing personal terms.

Mohamme has long been linked with a move from the first division club and word reaching this website is that he has now agreed to a deal that will take him to Chloorkop.

According to an informant, though the deal was for long up in the air, it was finally ironed out this week following back and forth talks.

With the Sundowns deal, the 23-year-old will also earn more than double what he was earning at AmaTuks.

Though there has been suggestions that Mohamme will be signed and then immediately loaned out, this has not been discussed as yet.

The likelihood is that if he is to be loaned out, it will be to another DStv Premiership team and not back to the GladAfrica Championship to enable his growth.

Mohamme had a transfer clause with TUKS, stipulating that a certain transfer fee had to be matched for him to move on from the Tshwane outfit.

No clarity has been given on whether the deal has been used to butter the loan moves of Harold Majadibodu and Malebogo Modise, who are expected to head in the opposite direction.

The Brazilians are signing Mohamme with the future in mind. considering Ricardo Nascimento is now 34 while Bangaly Soumahoro has not brought the value that they sought in him.

Other central defenders on the club's books include Brian Onyango and Rushine De Reuck, while Rivaldo Coetzee and new signing Grant Kekana are also capable of slotting into the heart of the backline.
