Sundowns to keep Mphela

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns have exercised the year-long option that they had on their striker, Katlego Mphela.

According to the website, there has been much speculation over the future of the Bafana Bafana striker over the last year, with reports linking him away from Chloorkop.

However, the player’s representative, Glyn Binkin, has confirmed that they had always expected the 28-year-old to stay on for another year.

He said, “They’ve exercised his option, they told me on Tuesday. He signed a two-year deal in 2010 that had options on.”

The option that Sundowns have taken on the forward is now their last, meaning that some time before June next year the player will either sign a new deal with the club or take the next step in his career.

Meanwhile midfielder, Esrom Nyandoro, has signed a new two-year contract with the club after impressing with his performances this campaign.
