Mamelodi Sundowns look to have made a decision on the future of goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse amid Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs R5million offer. The defending champions are believed to have informed Pieterse of their decision to exercise the option in his contract, despite him not getting any game time this season. Siya Crew Sources have revealed that both the Buccaneers and Glamour boys have made an offer of R5million to sign the goalkeeper which was rejected by Ka Bo Yellow.
Pieterse joined Sundowns from Tshwane rivals, SuperSport United in 2018 on a three year contract, with the hope that he would eventually unseat Denis Onyango as the number one shot stopper in the team, instead fallen down the pecking oder since the arrival of Ricardo Goss at the start of the current campaign.Sundowns also have Kennedy Mweene and Jody February competing for a place in the team. February could be sent out on loan next season.
” Yes we have inquired about his service if he is available so we can sign him, but Sundowns shut us down as they extended his stay with the club. Our offer was rejected as we are short of goalkeepers but we will do everything we can to sign a new goalie to help Gavin Hunt squad when there are injuries,” Vina Maphosa told KickOff.com reporters.KickOff.com reporters recently reported that both Cape Town City and Stellenbosch FC are interested in having the 28 year old Pieterse, but they would have to pay a transfer fee now that Sundowns have made the decision to exercise the option in the players contract. If Sundowns are interested, they could use Pieterse in a swap deal for players they want to bring on board for next season.
