According to source close to Golden Arrows Pule Mmodi and Arrows are currently still locked in negotiations for a new deal, with the source since revealing that the midfielder turned down the club latest offers.
Mmodi was one of the most talked about subjects in the January 2023 transfer window with Kaizer Chiefs poised as his next destination.
While the Kwazulu Natal outfit has been unsuccessful in previous attempts to extend the player deal, indications are that the club has not given up on potentially securing the player future.
“The player hasn’t signed anywhere despite Kaizer Chiefs pre-contract reports and Golden Arrows are still hopeful of retaining him” said the source.
Mmodi’s current deal with Abafana Besthende will come to an end on June 30 this year and while the club has since wrapped up several other contract extensions, the 30-year old is yet to sign on the dotted line
