Following the signing of the Bafana Bafana star, Masandawana are reportedly looking to part with one of their other midfielders

The future of Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lucky Mohomi could be in jeopardy following the capture of Andile Jali.

Despite winning the 2017/18 Premier Soccer League (PSL) title, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has already been hard at work bolstering his squad and his perseverance was rewarded as he completed the signing of the 28-year-old star amid serious interest from both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

The club’s latest acquisition now means that the future of Mohomi looks uncertain with others such as Oupa Manyisa, Tiyani Mabunda and Hlompho Kekana ahead of him in the pecking order.

Nonetheless, reports in Phakaaathi suggests that’s the player is likely to leave the club in the off-season or could even go out on loan if a move fails to materialises. In spite of Mohomi’s talent he has struggled for game time and only made two league appearances during the entire duration of the 2017/18 campaign.

This could potentially tempt Mohomi to look elsewhere as he goes in search of more game time especially with Jali entering the fray.

Meanwhile, the same publication reports that Algerian Fares Hachi who spent the past six months out on loan at Chippa United could extend his stay in the Eastern Cape with Dan Malesela keen on bringing the full-back back to club after having returned to the helm.

Prior to joining the Chilli Boys, Hachi struggled to cement a permanent space in the Sundowns’ starting XI, and while he did enjoy a few stellar performances, with the club looking to bring in some foreign blood and with their quota already fulfilled Hachi was forced to make way.

Nonetheless, it now remains to be seen whether or not the duo will be at the club next season especially with Sundowns set to bolster their squad even further as they look to not only retain their domestic crown but keep their hopes of another Caf Champions League triumph alive.
