Sundowns management are remaining tight lipped about whether they will be signing Orlando Pirates' Steve Lekoelea.
It is no secret that the former Bafana playmaker is highly unsettled at Pirates after spending most of the season on the bench playing second fiddle to up-and-coming youngsters such as Joseph Makhanya, Hleza Mofedi and Gift Leremi.
The skillful number 10 has been very outspoken about his situation in recent weeks, and his name has also been linked with Kaizer Chiefs, who are looking for a replacement for the wayward Jabu Pule.
Speaking on the official Sundowns website, managing director Anastasia Tsichlas did however hint that Lekoelea is a very talented player who could fit into Sundowns' future plans: "Yes, I said that Lekoelea is a good player," said Tsichlas. "But as for whether we would be signing him or not, that I cannot say at the moment because there are a lot of issues to be considered around the boy.
"It would not be fair for me to comment regarding those issues but let me stress that an awful lot of things have to be taken into consideration when dealing with Lekoelea, before a final decision can be taken." she added.
The "Iron Lady", as Tsichlas is known, refused to go into any more detail than that, except for saying that Sundowns will be making a statement at a meeting later today. The club will also be announcing a list of players which are to be released.
The Pretoria club are currently in the process of rebuilding after failing to recapture the form which saw them dominate the PSL in the late 90's.
Mining magnate Patrice Motsepe has taken over ownership of the club, and has been quick to show his intention of delving into the transfer market, as well as looking to the future by establishing a youth soccer academy near Pretoria.
