Agent confirms Sundowns deadline for Jody February

Mamelodi Sundowns have until 31 May to trigger the option on goalkeeper Jody February, his agent has confirmed to SABC Sport.

The shot stopper initially signed for the Tshwane giants nearly five years ago from the then Ajax Cape Town, but was loaned out to their crosstown rivals Cape Umoya United with the idea that he would continue to play regularly.

February also spent the latter part of the previous season at AmaZulu before returning back to Chloorkop, and it was only last month that the former junior international made his official debut for The Brazilians.

In the fixture against Sekhukhune United in the DStv Premiership at Loftus Stadium, a 2-1 victory, February came off the bench around the half-hour mark to replace his injured teammate and veteran Denis Onyango.

His agent Mike Makaab of Prosport International has now told the public broadcaster there is a decision pending on the player’s future at the club when asked whether Sundowns had offered February a new deal.

“No, they have an option to extend for an additional year, [and it] has to be exercised by the end of May,” the player’s long-time representative explained.

Downs have been busy behind the scenes with discussions to keep some of their best players even before they are out of contract.

Bafana Bafana skipper and keeper Ronwen Williams has put pen to paper until June 2028, while midfielder Teboho Mokoena is waiting for a revised offer.

February, now 28, will be in line waiting to know his fate at a club that not only has Williams and Onyango on their books, but Reyaad Pieterse as well as Ricardo Goss, who is expected to return from his two-year loan spell at SuperSport United.
