PSL clubs chase last day deals

Clubs have until midnight on Wednesday to finish their transfer business with one or two more deals expected to be concluded before the deadline for the end of the January transfer window.

The Premier Soccer League, who had previously closed the transfer window at 5pm on the last day of the month, now stay open until midnight, as is the international convention.

Moves are expected involving Abubakar Mobara, who could be heading to champions Bidvest Wits sooner than anticipated, and Khama Billiat, whose contract at Mamelodi Sundowns concludes at the end of the season. If they manage to sell him now, they will at least get some cash back.


Steven Pienaar is also in discussion about joining Cape Town City although he is out of contract and therefore not bound by the transfer window.

The last day of the window on Wednesday began dramatically with the purchase of Evans Rusike by SuperSport United, spending some of the transfer fee that Mamelodi Sundowns paid for Jeremy Brockie.

Brockie and Aubrey Ngoma have been the two major acquisitions for Sundowns, along with the Uruguayan striker Gaston Sirino.

Sundowns’ top rivals for the Absa Premiership have also been active in the market but both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are thought to have concluded their business.

Chiefs bought Siphelele Ntshangase from Baroka FC, Kabelo Mahlasela from Bloemfontein Celtic and Leonardo Castro from Sundowns while Pirates have added Phetso Maphanga and Diamond Thopola from Chippa United, Xola Mlambo from Wits and Augustine Mulenga from Zambia.

Champions Wits have added Edwin Gyimah, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Thobani Mncwango and Denis Wiedlich to their roster.
