Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Bonginkosi Ntuli on trial in Sweden

Despite spending most of his time out on loan, the Masandawana attacker is looking to earn himself a contract in Sweden

Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Bonginkosi Ntuli is looking to impress Swedish Allsvenskan outfit Djurgardens IF.

Ntuli, who has been on the books of the Brazilians since 2014, has consistently been loaned out following his move from fellow South African topflight outfit Golden Arrows.

The 27-year-old was most recently loaned out to Platinum Stars where he was unable to help the former Rustenburg based outfit avoid the drop.

However, things could be looking up for Ntuli with the Swedish club having confirmed the former AmaZulu forward’s presence at the club.

According to the club’s website, Ntuli has been invited for a trial and has already begun training with Djugardens.

The club are reportedly keen on bolstering their attacking department as they look to plot a title challenge. Djurgardens are currently placed fourth on the league standings.

Meanwhile, club sporting director Bosse Andersson has praised Ntuli’s attributes, but will not rush into making a final decision.

“He's fast, likes to be in the box and works hard to get better,” Bosse was quoted as saying by the club’s website.

“It is clear that he sees this as a kick to get this opportunity and we have time for us before the transfer window closes,” he added.

“We will see if this may be an option for the short perspective in the fall but there is an opportunity to discuss future as well,” he concluded.

If Ntuli does impress, he will not be the first Sundowns player to join Djurgardens. Former Sundowns star Nyasha Mushekwi previously joined the 11-time Swedish top-flight champions on loan.

Ntuli on the other hand, will be desperate for some first team football, having only donned the famous yellow of Sundowns on just two occasions.
