Sundowns likely to sacrifice goalkeeper

Transfer News

The shot-stopper joined Sundowns before the start of the 2017/18 PSL season after some time in the Spanish La Liga, but was unable to get ahead of Denis Onyango in the starting line-up.

At the time of joining Sundowns, Brimah was the number one keeper in the Ghanaian national team, but that position has since been given to Maritzburg United’s Richard Ofori, due to the former’s lack of game-time at Chloorkop.

His departure, however, might not even be because of game time. Sundowns are looking to open up a foreign slot after signing Toni Silva and Brimah is the man that could be sacrificed.

Sundowns currently have Brimah, Bangaly Soumahoro, Gaston Sirino, Jeremy Brockie and Ricardo Nascimento as the foreigners in the squad. Ivorian Yannick Zakri and Algerian Fares Hachi, who were sent out on loan for the second half of last season to Ajax Cape Town and Chippa United, could either be loaned out again or sold. There’s been interest from North Africa for both players.

Brimah made six appearance in a Sundowns shrt in the last season and kept two clean sheets.

If the big goalkeeper wants to get back into the Ghanaian national team, he may have to look for a new home.

Sundowns have refused to comment on the matter.
