Mamelodi Sundowns have quite a few players out on loan and Soccer Laduma looks at how they are performing, with the club set to make a decision on their futures in the coming months

Sundowns have sent out Ricardo Goss, Grant Margeman, Thabang Sibanyoni, Nicholus Lukhubeni, Divine Lunga, Keletso Makgalwa, Malebogo Modise, Siyanda Msani, Siphesihle Mkhize, Nyiko Mobbie and Lyle Lakay out on loan this season.

Makgalwa’s spell at TS Galaxy was cut short, because he did not live up to expectations. The 25-year-old made just five appearances for the Rockets and did not score a goal. The Siya crew recently reported that the striker is unlikely to return to Chloorkop this season because he is not in the plans of head coach Rulani Mokwena. An insider at Galaxy spoke about the decision to part ways with Makgalwa.

“He didn't live up to the expectations or fulfill his potential as a result spent most of his stay on the bench. He wants to play regularly hence the club allowed him to explore other opportunities where he can get game time,” the source said.

Goss and Margeman are enjoying good form at SuperSport. In fact, the Siya crew has reported that SuperSport are looking at the possibility of keeping Margeman, who is on a two-year loan deal, on a permanent basis. The former Ajax Cape Town midfielder has made 10 appearances and has found the back of the net twice since joining Matsatsantsa. 

Goss, meanwhile, has featured six times and has kept just one clean sheet. He has also signed a two-season loan deal and Sundowns are unlikely to recall him early, due to the fact that they have more than enough in their goalkeeping department.

Sibanyoni, the striker who was on loan to University of Pretoria last season, has not scored in six appearances for the side. He has only started twice and was later taken off on both occasions. 

Sundowns made the surprise decision to loan Lakay out to Cape Town City. He has made 11 appearances and played for 90 minutes in four consecutive matches before the break. 

Lunga has added value and experience since returning to Golden Arrows on loan. In the 12 appearances he has, Arrows have kept four clean and he has contributed with a goal and an assist. 

Msani has been doing well with rookies Richards Bay and has earned himself Bafana Bafana call-ups recently. The 21-year has started eight of the 11 matches he has played. He has played 90 minutes five times.
