Big decision awaits Mabunda at Downs


A few days before the transfer window re-opens, Mamelodi Sundowns are expected to make a telling decision on Tiyani Mabunda's future.

Mabunda is yet to feature for Sundowns this season after being offered to Swallows FC at the start of the season.

However, a deal between the Dube Birds and the defending champions fell through after the former failed to meet the player's financial obligations.

Now The Brazilians have to find a way to sort out Mabunda's future at Chloorkop or face the situation of him earning a salary without playing.

According to sources close to the former Black Leopards star, the 32-year-old is considering a move abroad after receiving an offer from an unnamed overseas team.

"Mabunda will meet Sundowns again in the next few days to discuss his future," the source tells

"There is interest from an overseas-based team but at the moment he is waiting for Sundowns to determine his future with the club."
