Cape Town - Cape Town City chairperson John Comitis has accepted that Aubrey Ngoma wants to join Mamelodi Sundowns and is looking to cut a deal.
Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has made no secret of his admiration for Ngoma over the last six months and previously angered Comitis after allegedly having contacted the player.
But it now looks as if the Cape Town City boss has changed his mind, or at least realises that getting a good price for the former Orlando Pirates and AmaTuks winger is the best he can do in the situation.
"Aubrey told us earlier during the season that he wants to join Sundowns. If they strike the deal then we will talk," Comitis told IOL website.
"We need to be realistic. He hasn't played much (because of a knee injury).
"He has done well in the little game time he has had. But we can't hang onto player whose mind is else-where.
"We gave Sundowns the proposal and they know what they need to do if they want to have Aubrey."
According to the report, the Citizens could be looking to replace Ngoma with Sundowns wide-player Mogakolodi Ngele.
They have also been linked with Free State Stars striker Mohammed Anas after Lehlohonolo Majoro departed for Bidvest Wits this week.
