SOCCER – POLICE side Royal leopard are working on securing the signature of Manzini Sundowns striker Melusi Mkhwanazi.

According to reliable sources within the club’s structures, the lanky goal-poacher has been training with the team throughout their pre-season and even featured in the friendly games against South African side TS Sporting.

He is said to be in the plans of newly appointed mentor Edwin Matsebula for the new season.

“I think it’s only a matter of finalising the deal.The player has been training with the team for quite some time, and it is clear that the coach is a big fan of the boy. I mean he is a complete striker, who has an eye for goal, can head the ball well, is good with both feet and on top of all; his finishing is out of this world,” he said.

This was confirmed by the team’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Frank Hurube yesterday.

Hurube acknowledged the player‘s presence in the team, albeit making it clear that the team was still trying to secure his signature.

“Yes, what you are saying is true indeed. The player has been with our team, and yes  he even featured in the pre-season games as you say. We are still in negotiations with his team though. He hasn’t signed on the dotted line for Leopard as of yet,” he said.

The blue and white outfit is said to also be chasing the signatures of Vovovo’s duo of Banele Dlamini and Sifiso Dlamini and when quizzed on them, Hurube gave the same comment.

“Those are also players we would love to have with us this season, but just like I had mentioned with Mkhwanazi, there’s contracts involved, so they are not yet our players. We are still after their services,” said the soft -Hurube.
