Coach Pitso Mosimane has talked about have a manageable squad and this could see some players being loaned out to help them get game-time elsewhere.
Youngster Thendo Mukumela has just been confirmed as an Ajax Cape Town player on a permanent deal, while his former development teammate Keletso Makgalwa looks to have joined Maritzburg United on loan, together with Ivorian Yannick Zakri. Ghanaian goalkeeper Razak Brimah has left the club, following the arrival of Reyaad Pieterse.
Brimah is almost certain to be followed by Thela Ngobeni.
Ngobeni spent the second half of last season on loan to Free State Stars and it’s going to be the same story again for him this season.
Mogakolodi Ngele, who was loaned to SuperSport United for the second half of last season, will be pushing to make a move where he can get a chance to play. The Botswana international has no chance of playing this season with all the quality in the Sundowns side, so another move would ensure that he does not sit in the stands twiddling his thumbs or playing football in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge. He has been training on his own since returning from his loan spell.
Another player who could leave the club is Zimbabwean striker Cuthbert Malajila. With Jeremy Brockie, Jose Ali Meza and Thokozani Sekotlong competing for spots upfront, Malajila will see little action if he stays.
Bongi Ntuli, loaned out last season to Platinum Stars, is eyeing a move to Europe. He’s been on trial in Sweden to the country’s top club Djurgardens, where he’s hoping to secure a deal.
Midfielder Sibusiso Kumalo could finally leave the club.
