Three Of Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeepers are pushing for loan move

Three of Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeepers are reportedly forcing a loan move away from the club for more regular playing time.

The 2020/21 DStv Premiership champions have one of the strongest goalkeeping departments in the league at this moment.

Currently at the club Mamelodi Sundowns have five first team Goalkeepers Jody February, Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene, Ricardo Goss and Reyaad Pieterse.

Mamelodi Sundowns first-choice goalkeeper, Denis Onyango has been in good form for the past five years at the Club and that leaves many of the other goalkeeping options finding it difficult to find playing time.

Jody February, a former Ajax Cape Town player and South Africa youth international, is now trying to force a season-long loan deal in search of more regular playing time for the 2021/22 season.

And now, according to a source close to the player, Jody February remains happy at Sundowns but he has asked his management team to start looking for a temporary move away from the club.

"The talks have been going well at this moment, so it's going to happen soon Jody will leave on loan," the source revealed to KickOff publication.

"It's a mutual feeling from the club and the player. Both parties feel the player is still very young and he needs enough time to develop into a great player and possibly in future form part of the team after his loan move.

"It will be decided next week on which club he will play for and for how long.

"The player is not personally involved in the negotiations. His Agent have been handling everything for him."

Jody February's agent, Mike Makaab, when reached for his comment on the matter he was quoted as saying, "we are working on it, all will be revealed soon".

Reyaad Pieterse and Ricardo Gross are also in discussions with the club and their Agents to get a loan move away from the club for more game time.
