SuperSport United want to secure a longer deal for former Orlando Pirates midfielder Siphesihle Ndlovu. The 26-year-old joined Matsatsantsa on a one-year deal with an option to extend.
Ndlovu, who is an academy graduate of Maritzburg United, made his professional debut in 2016. In total, he managed 80 appearances for the Team of Choice and played a key role in the 2017-18 season when he guided them to a fourth-place finish in the DStv Premiership and was rewarded with the Young Player of the Season award.
While at Pirates, he made 13 appearances but did not feature under head coach Jose Riveiro. Hence the reason why he had to left Orlando Pirates for the greener pastures of SuperSport United.
The player has enjoyed a good run of form at SuperSport, receiving the man of the match award recently against Cape Town City in their last game, where they beat the Citizens by a 1-0 score line.
His contract expires in June 2023, but the club has the option of extending his current deal. With him currently back to his best, clubs are able to speak to him because he is in his last six months of his current deal. SuperSport United will need to make a decision quickly as Ndlovu is becoming a prominent figure, racking up 12 appearances of which 92 percent were starting berths.
“We will see at the end of the season, we are enjoying him at the club,” SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
He is becoming a permanent fixture under Gavin Hunts’ second stint at the everchanging Tshwane-based club.
