SuperSport United set to complete deal for Mamelodi Sundowns duo

Mamelodi Sundowns pair of goalkeeper Ricardo Goss and defender Nyiko Mobbie are set to join crosstown rivals SuperSport United in the coming days, SABC Sport can reveal.

Goss spent the previous two years at the same club on loan and had returned back to Chloorkop for medicals and pre-season, although a decision had been taken to put the Bafana Bafana international on the market.

The 30-year-old wants to continue playing regular football to remain in contention for the national team, ahead of crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup and 2025 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers during the international calendar.

According to information gathered by the public broadcaster, SuperSport are now in advanced talks to retain the shot-stopper’s services and will be joined by right-back Nyiko Mobbie, who has also been out on loan at Sekhukhune United.

Both players were at the AFCON with Bafana earlier this year, as part of the group that clinched a bronze medal under coach Hugo Broos.

Mobbie, now 29, joined Sundowns from the now-defunct Free State Stars five years ago, but struggled to break into the Tshwane giants’ starting line-up.

He has since been around the block – having spent loan spells at Stellenbosch FC, then Chippa United and most recently Sekhukhune from September 2021 until the end of last season.

SABC Sport understands Matsatsantsa are in discussions to also make the move for the defender a permanent one instead.

Premier Soccer League clubs have returned for pre-season ahead of the 2024/25 campaign getting underway early next month, with Goss and Mobbie expected to be part of SuperSport’s preparations in Botswana, with an official announcement imminent.
