Mushekwi extends Sundowns contract

Mamelodi Sundowns striker Nyasha Mushekwi is the latest player to extend his contract at the club, a week after captain Teko Modise did a new deal with the Brazilians.

The Zimbabwe international, recently embroiled in the Asiagate scandal in his home country for which he received a suspended sentence, had been at the end of his current deal in June but the club have exercised their option to extend it by a further year.

They also have an option for one more season if they wish, according to his agent Ralph Nkomo.

Mushekwi has missed only one league match for the club this season either in the starting line up or as a substitute.

The 25-year-old has made 48 starts and scored 37 times in his three seasons at Sundowns who signed him from Harare club CAPS United.

Modise signed a new three-year contract last Monday just one day after an altercation with fans when the club went out at home to Platinum Stars in the Nedbank Cup.

The former Bafana Bafana midfielder is now tied to the club until mid-2016 when he will be 33-years-old.

Modise had been the subject of verbal abuse and the rolling of wrists from fans but was defended by his coach Pitso Mosimane.
