Uzoenyi heads to Sundowns

30 June 2014, 15:09

Johannesburg - Ejike Uzoenyi is set to be another one of Mamelodi Sundowns' new signings who could be lost before kicking a ball for the reigning Premier Soccer League champions.

The Brazilians signed the Nigerian winger in January after an impressive showing at the Africa Nations Championship where he was named the Player of the Tournament.

They also acquired Zimbabwean midfielder Kudakwashe Mahachi in the same transfer window, but both stayed in their homelands on loan as Sundowns had exhausted their foreign quota.

Mahachi has since been invited for a trial French club AS Monaco, while Ejike, who is currently World Cup on duty with the Super Eagles in Brazil, is also being courted by European clubs.

Head coach Pitso Mosimane confirmed the news and admitted that they could lose the talented pair before they play an official match for the club.

"Mahachi will leave soon for AS Monaco for trials and I firmly believe that he will make the grade there," Mosimane is quoted as saying by The Sowetan.

"In the meantime we are looking at several offers for Uzoenyi," he added.

Both Mahachi and Ejike signed four-year deals with Sundowns on their arrival.
