Dove Wome will head off to SuperSport United after Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane told him that he will play no part for them this season

Goal can exclusively reveal that Dove Wome is definitely leaving Mamelodi Sundowns despite the club initially denying it.
A source within the Brazilians camp has told Goal that Wome's attitude during the course of last season didn't please Pitso Mosimane, who then decided not to include the player in his future plans.
"He didn't like the idea of being benched last season and started sulking. That clearly didn't sit well with the coach and he told him that he's not going to use him next season," the source told Goal.
"Wome is a quality player and believe me Pitso likes him, but he hates to be surrounded by players who want special treatment from him," added the source.
Goal reported a few days ago that SuperSport United were preparing to bid for the former Free State Stars man, and it has now been confirmed that the 23-year-old attacker will join the Tshwane outfit.
According to All Africa Sports News agency, Wome's agent Antoine Figali flew into the country on Monday to have talks with SuperSport and it's said that negotiations are at an advanced stage and he will be unveiled as United's sixth signing after Andile Fikizolo, Thamsanqa Teyise, Lerato Manzini, Clayton Daniels and Michael Morton next week.
It's a move he has welcomed, as he will have more of an opportunity to play regular football, something that came in drips and drabs in the second half of last season.
