Teboho Mokoena set to join Mamelodi Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns are said to have won the race for the signature of sought-after Bafana Bafana and Supersport United’s Teboho Mokoena on a long-term deal.

Recently, Sundowns were said to have been joined by Belgian giants Anderlecht in their pursuit of SuperSport United‘s Teboho Mokoena.

Anderlecht – who are coached by former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany – were reported to have tabled a R20 million bid for the Bafana Bafana international, which falls short of the figure of R25 million that Sundowns apparently put forward to secure Mokoena’s signature. There was also said to be some interest from Naturena, Kaizer Chiefs.

In the latest news, Soccer Laduma has received confirmation from the player’s agent, Glyn Binkin, that he has signed a deal to make the switch during the current January transfer window.

“I don’t like to talk about these things, but yes I can confirm that the player agreed terms last week and subsequently put pen to paper. All this is subject to the two clubs agreeing, but I believe an announcement is now imminent,” Binkin told the Siya crew.

The Soweto Giants, Kaizer Chiefs were also reportedly interested in his services, but have been beaten to Mokoena’s signature by the Brazilians who have the upper hand when it comes to local transfers. The Chloorkop based Brazilians will welcome the Bafana midfielder on a reported four-and-a-half year contract.
