Pretoria - The University of Pretoria have confirmed they intend to sign industrious midfielder Raymond Monama on a permanent deal.

The 24-year-old player joined AmaTuks on a season-long loan deal from their Pretoria rivals Mamelodi Sundowns at the beginning of last season, having joined the Absa Premiership reigning champions from Black Leopards.

AmaTuks spokesperson Pearl Mosoane told Sport24 in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that the club head coach Steve Barker is interested in keeping the Seshego-born midfielder on their books after his impressive form last season.

Mosoane also said that despite AmaZulu and other PSL teams chasing Monama signature, the Pretoria-based side are currently negotiating with the Brazilians for his services.

“Yes we are very keen on keeping Raymond (Monama),” Mosoane said.

“Our coach (Barker) is still interested in his services.

“We are currently negotiating for a new deal with his club Mamelodi Sundowns, but nothing has been finalised yet.

“But there are also other PSL clubs interested in his services as well.

“AmaZulu have also shown interest and they have spoken to us with regards to this matter.

“But right now, he is still a Sundowns player,” she added.

With Sundowns recruiting plenty of players to compete in Monama’s position, it is unlikely to see the former Leopards man returning to Chloorkop for the next campaign.
