Thanda Royal Zulu Captain July Mahlangu In Demand

Thanda Royal Zulu’s captain July Mahlangu is wanted by three South African Premiership clubs.
Mahlangu’s contract expires at the end of June and, although Royal Zulu are keen to keep him, the midfielder appears reluctant to stay another season at the Durban side, which has crumbled badly since the departure of previous captain Bernard Parker for Serbia during mid-season.

AmaZulu and Bloemfontein Celtic have made their intentions of luring him to their respective clubs very clear, but Mahlangu looks set to wait until the end of May before making a final decision regarding his future.

Following Thanda Royal Zulu's goalless draw against Maritzburg United in their final league fixture of the season, they were forced into the Platinum promotional play-offs against Carara Kicks, Mpumalanga Black Aces and FC Cape Town to determine the last team that would enter the elite division following the relegation of Bay United.

It will be interesting to see if Mahlangu will receive an offer from one of the bigger clubs before he makes his decision.
