Despite his agent confirming that his client is still in Mamelodi Sundowns’ plans, it seems midfielder Lesedi Kapinga is leaving as the club is preparing to offload him.

The latest word doing the rounds in South African media is that Sundowns are preparing to ship out Kapinga and he will be part of sweetening a number of deals.

Kapinga joined Sundowns from Black Leopards in 2018 but he is out of favour under coach Rulani Mokwena, prompting speculation regarding his future.


According to a report from SABC Sport, the former Lidoda Duvha star will leave Sundowns as the Tshwane giants are involved in a number of negotiations and it is likely that he will be offloaded.

The public broadcaster has it that the DStv Premiership champions, Sundowns are in talks with SuperSport United and Cape Town City and will use Kapinga to sweeten the negotiations as part of a swap deal.

“As the club looks for potential transfer targets for next season, it’s understood Kapinga will be used as a deal sweetener where necessary.”

Having arrived at Chloorkop from the Thohoyandou-based Leopards, Kapinga signed a three-year contract with a further option to extend by another two seasons, effectively tying him down at Chloorkop until June 2025.

However, he has been starved of regular game time and that suggests his days are numbered at Sundowns as he only featured in six matches in all competitions coupled with two assists last season.

SABC Sport has it on good authority that Sundowns have had conversations with, among other clubs, SuperSport United and Cape Town City about the player in exchange for their key figures,” adds the public broadcaster.

Looking at a similar report, The South African reported that Kapinga’s handler Moses Mudau previously said his player has a future with Masandawana.
