Mamelodi Sundowns have opened negotiations for two Free State Stars players but the deal is still some way from being finalised, officials said on Thursday.
“We have granted Sundowns permission to talk to them. It is obvious that they must agree personal terms otherwise there is no point in the clubs settling on the transfer deal,” Stars’ general manager Rantsi Mokoena told
“As far as we know, Sundowns are still talking to them and when that is done then we’ll sit down and hammer out a deal.”
Mokoena said his club were comfortable in letting their captain and goalkeeper Mweene go after eight seasons and more than 200 games for the club.
“He has gone well for us and it is probably now the right time we both have a change.”
Wome has spent two seasons at Stars and is now an established international with Togo, having scored at the African Nations Cup finals that South Africa hosted earlier this year.
Stars have also let go defenders Jesse Jackson and Tsietsi Mkhwanazi and the Zimbabwean striker Taongo Dondo and re also not renewing the six month deal they had in place with the Ethiopian striker Fikru Tefera.
