Cape Town - Cape Town City boss John Comitis has revealed why the last-minute loan deal for Mamelodi Sundowns defender Rheece Evans fell through.

The newly-formed Premiership side were active on the transfer deadline day, as they signed Thato Mokeke from SuperSport United, but lost the services of current PSL Young Player Of The Year Aubrey Modiba to Matsatsantsa.

Eric Tinkler's side were poised to sign the 25-year-old, but the deal reportedly fell through after the two parties failed to agree on terms.

Despite recently featuring in the Chloorkop-based outfit's CAF Champions League loss against Enyimba, Evans is expected to play a little or no part in Pitso Mosimane's plans.

If anything, the arrival of Bafana Bafana defender Anele Ngcongca will see Evans plunge further down the pecking order under Mosimane.
