Premiership

KickOff.com has learnt that Mamelodi Sundowns have made an approach to land two Highlands Park stars at the end of the season.

Highlands bosses are in the process of selling the club to outside buyers, which has cast doubt over all their players' futures as TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi leads the race to purchase the franchise.

Top striker Peter Shalulile and midfielder Mothobi Mvala, two of their most valuable stars in their prime at 27 and 26, are now ready to move to bigger teams.

According to a source close to both players, The Brazilians could finally land the big striker signing Pitso Mosimane has been targeting since last year.

"Peter Shalulile and Mothobi Mzava's future will be decided this week, there's been teams chasing them," the source tells KickOff.com.

"But now Sundowns are leading and they are in the final stages of the negotiations. The decision should be made this week or next week."

Highlands chairman Brad Kaftel is hesitant to divulge too much information but confirms there are negotiations for those two players.

"I can't confirm nor deny that we are in talks with teams regarding those two players, there's been negotiations going on, but nothing has been concluded," Kaftel says.

"Remember the season ends this weekend, so all things will be concluded next week. For now there's nothing and I can't talk about something that is not finalised."

Mosimane has been desperate to sign a quality striker and missed out on his top target Knowledge Musona at the turn of the year, with 14-goal Shalulile presenting a brand new option who is proven in the PSL.
