Cape Town - AmaZulu boss Lunga Sokhela has confirmed that Mamelodi Sundowns have made an official approach for in-form striker Emiliano Tade.

The Argentinian has been in superb form for Usuthu this season having scored seven goals and recorded two assists in all competitions.

Reports suggest that Sundowns are offering on loan forward Bongi Ntuli on a permanent basis plus cash for the 30-year-old.

Sokhela told Kickoff: "They are asking. They are talking but for that he is contracted to AmaZulu.

"They did officially make an approach.

The reality now is we still have two days to go [before the transfer window shuts]. We will see what happens."

The South American star has a proven goal-scoring pedigree having plundered 31 league goals for Auckland City in the previous two seasons in New Zealand's Premier League.

It appears the exit of Toni Silva for Egypt's Ittehad Alexandria has freed up another space for a foreigner in the squad of the Brazilians.
