Last week has been jam-packed with new PSL updates as the clock begins to tick down towards the end of the transfer window in just over a month’s time.
Tshwane-based outfits SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns have been particularly active.
Matsatsantsa have allowed Senegal striker Mame Niang to join the Brazilians, while Togolese attacker Dove Wome has moved the other way.
SuperSport have also snapped up junior international marksman Thabani Mthembu from Platinum Stars, a player current SuperSport and former Dikwena coach Cavin Johnso knows well.
Johnson’s side has parted way with another West African player, Edwin Gyimah, the combative midfielder will now turn out in the colours of MP Black Aces next season.
North West outfit Platinum Stars meanwhile are determined to hold onto their prized asset, Mogakolodi Ngele, with coach Allan Freese saying he is hopeful of retaining the Botswana international this season.
“I would like him to stay,” Freese told the Dikwena website. “But we have reached a stage where everything is now in the hands of management. The discussions taking place at that level will decide the player’s future.”
Down in Port Elizabeth, Chippa United continue to add numbers to their squad and have signed former Thanda Royal Zulu captain Chris Komane, while also having confirmed that Siyabulela Shai will remain at the club.
Making the step up from the NFD to the Absa Premiership is Gladwin Sithole, the former Jomo Cosmos defender and skipper now an Orlando Pirates player.
“The 24-year-old defender comes to the Mighty Buccaneers with a wealth of experience, having represented South Africa at the Under-20 and 23 levels, as well as the national senior team, Bafana Bafana,” read a statement on the Buccaneers’ website.
Maritzburg United have strengthened their defence, having recently signed Zimbabwean left-back Khumbulani Banda, while brining in Abel Mabaso, another full-back, on loan from Sundowns.
Free State Stars have secured the services of striker Richard Henyekane, the Kimberley-born player making his loan move from Mamelodi Sundowns a permanent deal.
Kaizer Chiefs are hopeful that they will soon have a fully fit squad available, and have also been boosted with the news that the injury that caused Zimbabwean striker to depart the field during last weekend’s clash with Orlando Pirates, is not a serious one.
“It was nothing much, but a ‘dead’ leg,” the club reported on their website. “He should recover fairly quickly. He should be available for the Sunday encounter against MP Black Aces in the MTN8 quarterfinal.
Winger Siphiwe Tshabalala is also said to be recovering well after he hurt his knee during a friendly match against Chippa United a fortnight ago.
