Sangweni set to leave Ajax

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Thamsanqa Sangweni look set leave Ajax Cape Town after the club reportedly failed to agree to his exorbitant financial demands.

Sangweni spent last season on loan at Ikamva, but the club could not match his demands to prolong his stay.

His proposed trial in Europe was called off earlier after he picked up a injury.

He was to fly to Turkey last week for a trial at Akhisar Belediyespor in the Turkish Super League.

While at the Mother City club, Sangweni put in a number of brilliant performances and the club was reportedly keen on retaining his services.

Downs are flush with midfielders and it is highly unlikely he will be in Pitso Mosimane’s plans for the coming season.

Sangweni has now been linked to the University of Pretoria and PSL comeback kids Chippa United.

But AmaTuks coach Steve Barker insists nothing is on the cards yet.

“Everyone knows that we have constantly been in contact with Sundowns regarding several players,” said Barker, “and last season we were told that he was not available. But nothing has been initiated yet and we will announce every new player at the club at a later stage.”

Bidvest Wits have meanwhile signed Tuks defender Buhle Mkhwanazi.

“@bidvestwits is pleased to announce the permanent transfer of Buhle Mkhwanazi from Tuks to the Clever Boys,” a tweet from the club’s official account read yesterday.
