MAMELODI Sundowns striker Nyasha Mushekwi is poised to leave the club in January as he pushes towards finally releasing himself from the frustration that he has had to endure at Chloorkop.
Word reaching is that Sundowns are in agreement with Mushekwi that he will now be allowed to leave, with the club realising that the January transfer window will be the last chance for them to make money out of him.
The Zimbabwean is out of contract at the end of June but he has already declared his intention to start playing football again as early as January.
The options are widespread for the 28-year-old but The Brazilians hold the key.
A return to Scandinavia is possible but the three clubs there keen on him have failed to reach an agreement with Sundowns over the transfer fee for a January move as they bargain towards a free transfer in mid-year.
Locally another three clubs – all based in Gauteng – who still have foreign space are interested in having him as soon as January but they will have to dance to Sundowns’ tune for that to happen.
If Mushekwi is moving to a local club The Brazilians would prefer to do a deal with a club that will give them a player of their choice as part of the transfer which is why Bidvest Wits have been mentioned.
Wits have Sibusiso Vilakazi – a player that Sundowns have for long shown their desire to have but one that they will not get easily as The Students have mentioned they want to keep their best players in their bid to seriously challenge for the league title this season.
At the other end Gavin Hunt is in need of another striker to strengthen his squad in January.
The other two Gauteng-based clubs don’t have the financial muscle to pay a transfer fee but they have guaranteed the Zimbabwean forward game-time for the second half of the season, and Mushekwi just wants that – to play football again.
Mushekwi last played for Swedish Allsvenskan club Djurgadens IF earlier this year, scoring 12 goals in 18 starts and was also on another loan at Belgian outfit KV Oostende prior to that.
He is not eligible to be registered by Sundowns due to the fact that the club has already exhausted its foreign quota.Advertisement
