Sithole eyes SuperSport move

Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Simba Sithole looks like he will soon be returning to South Africa.

The Dynamos hitman has been invited for trials at Nedbank Cup holders SuperSport United, and is expected to link up with the Tshwane-based club later this week.

According to a source, Sithole will spend a week with the three-time Premier Soccer League champions, who are managed by experienced tactician Gavin Hunt.

“He together with Roderick Mutuma are supposed to leave this week for trials in South Africa. Mutuma is going to Bloemfontein Celtic and Sithole to SuperSport United. I am not sure what will happen as both have been registered for Champions League this year,” said the informant.

Dynamos vice-chairman Webster Chikengezha is aware of the arrangement but said the details have yet to be thrashed out. He insists the Zimbabwean champions will not stand in the way of their players furthering their careers.

“We are waiting for official letters from the teams so that we know where the players are going,” Chikengezha said.

“We don’t have a problem with them going for trials. We want our players to realise their dreams of playing professional outside Zim so there is no problem with that,” he added.
