Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper to seek loan move in pursuit of regular game-time


The 2020/21 DStv Premiership champions boast one of the strongest goalkeeping departments in the league.

Within their 48-man squad, Sundowns currently have at their disposal Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene, Reyaad Pieterse, Ricardo Goss and Jody February.

Following the impressive displays of first-choice goalkeeper, Onyango many of the other goalkeeping options have found playing time hard to come by.

February, a former South Africa youth international, is now believed to be in search of a season-long loan deal for the 2021/22 campaign.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper previously told this publication back in August 2019 that he was more than happy to learn from the best at Chloorkop.

"I think playing for Sundowns forces you out of your comfort zone," February said.

"To test how strong you are as a man and not just physically but mentally as well.

"I think for me, it will be a good thing considering how young I am."

But now, according to a source, even though February remains happy at Sundowns, he has instructed his agent to look for a temporary move.

"They haven't had that crunch talks yet, but it's going to happen soon," the source revealed to KickOff.

"It's a mutual thing. Both parties feel the player is still young and still has enough time to form part of the team once his loan expires.

"It will be decided next week if he's going to be staying or not.

"February will not be personally involved in the negotiations. He has left everything to his agent.".

February's agent, Mike Makaab, when reached for comment was quoted as saying, "we are working on it".
