Sundowns loosens their ropes on their lethal striker, see more

MamelodI Sundowns are ready to part with their £12m striker, who was signed at the start of last season with high hopes.

Slovak striker Pavol Safranco's future at Sandown looks clear if Rulani Mokwena's comments are anything to go by. Safranko joined Sundown from Sepsi in Romania for Rs 12 million and is a regular starter, although he regularly starts from the bench for the Tshwane giants.

The Sundowns have been trying for weeks to get rid of Safranco to make room for their two new international signings. The deals of Chilean international Marcelo Allende and Moroccan defender Abdel-Moneim Botwill have been confirmed for Sundowns.

However, Sundown have yet to reveal this as they work behind the scenes to resolve overseas quota issues for the current season. Now, when asked about Safranco's latest position with Sundown, Mokwena said the club's profile has changed, indicating the 27-year-old is no longer in the coaching staff's plans.

Mokoena revealed that Sundowns will make any necessary statements about what will happen with Safranco, adding that he is not at liberty to comment at this time. "In Safranco, the club will make a statement," Mokwina told reporters. - The profile of our club has changed a little. And there are things... but the club will make announcements, I am not at liberty to say that at the moment.` Safranko will leave Sundowns scoring nine goals in 28 games for the 2016 CAF Champions League champions.
