Bongani Zungu left French Ligue 2 side Amiens earlier this year and there has been talk of a move to the big South African side for quite some time.

Zungu, who made several appearances for Bafana Bafana and was considered a sought-after recruit by clubs such as Chiefs and Sundowns, signed for Scottish side Rangers on loan from Amiens in October 2020.


Rangers also secured the option to sign him permanently for a transfer fee of £2.7m. However, his first link with Amiens began when he joined the club from Vitoria Guimarães in 2017.

The 29-year-old recently found playing time for Amiens sporadic and it was confirmed midway through the year that he was no longer part of the club’s future plans.

“We were in talks with the club about a new contract, but I decided that I’m leaving,” Zungu said back in June.

“I am now a free agent and my agent will be looking at my next move. Hopefully this will be another project I can get excited about. We will find out in the coming weeks until I can discuss the available options.’

A few weeks ago Zungu also opened on Enhanced sports night about his current situation and future plans, saying Sundowns were the only club to contact him.

In a report that appeared on Phakaaati it was suggested on Wednesday that Sundowns could be closing in on securing Zungu’s services.

“Zungu has always made it clear that he wants to play for Sundowns again and the club is working around the clock to bring him back to Chlorkope,” the source said.

“He has a good relationship with coach Rulani Mokwena and everyone is hoping that Mokwena can broker a deal for the club,” the source added.


According to a report that appeared on SABC Sport last monthSundowns have gone back to the player and his camp to discuss better personal terms and there are reasons to believe that a deal can now be reached given there is no transfer fee.

​While Zungu has been in high demand and may be keeping his options open, it is reported that a return to the club where he excelled between 2013 and 2016 could be attractive before moving to Portugal and then to France.
