SABC Sport reliably claims that Swallows FC could be on the verge of signing Mamelodi Sundowns striker Promise Mkhuma for next season.

The 22-year-old has been on the sidelines at Chlorkope for the past year, but the Dube Birds could help revive that career under manager Dylan Kerr.

It is understood that the two clubs must reach an agreement by the end of this week.

Mkhuma’s representatives, Prosport International, have been working to lure him away from Sundowns for over a year now, with Cape Town City and SuperSport United in talks in the past.

But nothing ever materialized and Mhuma made just one appearance last season – a 25-minute cameo in the Nedbank Cup and a statistic bemoaned by many in the football fraternity due to the forward’s immense potential.

In January 2020, he was promoted to the Downs’ senior team by then manager Pizzo Mosimane, a few months after playing at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Mhuma then signed a five-year contract and Masiman likened him to Percy Thaw, whose fairytale story from the academy team to the senior team led to his R50 million move to English Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion four years ago.

However, he failed to write his own story and instead fizzled out when Masimane left Downs and the duo of Mankoba Mngkiti and Rulani Mokwena took over almost two seasons ago.

There are indications that the Swallows have agreed a deal in principle for the striker to start again, but it is not yet clear whether it will be on loan or on a permanent basis.

The Dube Birds have a good working relationship with Sundowns, as evidenced by the decision made at Chloorkop last season to send four players on loan to Dobsonville.
