Cape Town City attacking midfielder Mduduzi Mdantsane was rumoured to be a deadline day shock signing for Kaizer Chiefs. Now it seems as the deal is off and that the midfielder will remain in Cape Town.
The Cape Town City star grabbed most of the headlines for City in the past seasons, with many having said he could be just as good for Chiefs as one of the focal point of their attack build ups.
The facts of the matter are that Cape Town City were prepared to let Mdantsane go and went as far as to offer him to respective clubs, Chiefs being one of them who at the time showed a willingness to negotiate.
City owner John Comitis was keen to get him off the books to make space for promising youngsters who are knocking on the first team door. However Chiefs lost interest in the deal when the price gag that City put on Mdantsane became clear. It is also known that the City coaching staff were also not keen on losing a player of Mdantsane’s experience and ability.
The 28-year-old playmaker’s contract with City is coming to the end in June this year. He signed a three-and-a-half-year deal when he joined the club midway through the 2019/20 season after being clubless in December 2019.
Mdantsane has featured 17 times this season in all competitions and is yet to score a goal. He has only assisted once. Should Chiefs and the Citizens agree on any deal, the former Baroka star could join Amakhosi before midnight.
It has been said that City have now exercised their option on the player.
