The South African champions are likely to sell the Ghanaian centre back to an European club in order to make way for a new foreigner
Ghana international Rashid Sumaila could leave Mamelodi Sundowns since the PSL outfit have exceeded their quota of non-South African players.
Goal Ghana understands that one Brazilian would have to make way for a top-class Zimbabwean forward Kudakwashe Mahachi.
Mahachi became the sixth foreign addition to Downs’ line-up after he recently inked a five-year contract with the big-spending Brazilians.
Mahachi caught Sundowns scouts' eyes following his sparkling showing for his country at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cape Town in January.
A Downs insider revealed to Sowetanive that “'one must go, and I can tell you now that it is going to happen before the new season kicks off.”
Teams are allowed to sign five foreigners, but only three can play in a match. The other two can come in as substitutes for other foreigners.
The foreigners in Chloorkop are midfielder Khama Billiat, striker Cuthbert Malajila (both Zimbabweans), Togolese Dove Wome, Ghanaian Rashid Sumaila and Zambian Mulenga Mukuka.
Sumaila, who is with the Black Stars of Ghana in Brazil, has been linked with clubs in Belgium, France and the Netherlands.
