Mahlambi’s agent dismisses Mamelodi Sundowns transfer rumours
Phakamani Mahlambi’s agent has revealed that they have received no offers for the South African, saying he could still continue with Red Devils.
The South Africa international has joined Al Ahly last summer from PSL outfit Bidvest Wits, but has endured a difficult start to life in Egypt.
He made only 15 appearances in his debut season, scoring once while registering five assists as Al Ahly claimed the Egyptian Premier League title.
Reports in South Africa have linked Phakamani with a possible summer transfer to Mamelodi Sundowns and speculation about a potential exit increased after the arrival of Mali international Salif Coulibaly.
However, the player’s agent Glyn Binkin has dismissed the speculation, saying Phakamani still has a chance to stay at Al Ahly.
“He has been linked with a move to many clubs at the moment, and there is nothing so far on the table in terms of offers,” Binkin told Goal.
“We are waiting for the club (Ahly) to decide because they’ve just announced a new coach and he will want to look at the players. We will have to see and take it from there.
“Yeah, they signed a Malian international player and that doesn’t necessarily mean they will loan or release Mahlambi.
“Yes, they have four foreigners now… they were also looking to release a Moroccan player, but we will wait and see what the club decides,” explained the agent.
The EFA allow only four foreign players to be registered in the domestic squad, with the Red Devils currently having five [Ali Maaloul, Walid Azaro, Junior Ajayi, Salif Coulibaly, and Phakamani Mahlambi].
“We need game time for him and we will wait at this moment. Yes, Sundowns are a good side, they have a top coach, but he [Mahlambi] is cup-tied and cannot play in the Caf Champions League,” he added.
“We will have to see what Ahly’s options are and maybe Sundowns will interest Ahly and Mahlambi… we will see,” he concluded.
