Nyiko Mobbie, After Impressive Loan Stint at Sekhukhune United, Eyes Permanent Move from Mamelodi Sundowns as Agent Mike Makaab Navigates Talks

Football agent Mike Makaab has hinted at a potential permanent departure for Nyiko Mobbie from Mamelodi Sundowns as the 2024/25 season approaches.

Mobbie, who spent the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season on loan at Sekhukhune United, made a significant impact during his tenure there.

Playing in 35 matches across various competitions, the right-back established himself as a key player for Sekhukhune.

His standout performances earned him a place in Hugo Broos’ Bafana Bafana squad, where he shared responsibilities with Khuliso Mudau in the right-back position.

Mobbie’s contributions weren’t just limited to club football.

His stellar performances with Babina Noko also caught the attention of the national team selectors.

He was part of the Bafana Bafana squad that clinched the bronze medal at the 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast earlier this year.

This achievement further underscored his growing reputation and versatility on the field.

Since joining Sundowns from Free State Stars in 2018, Mobbie has had loan spells at various clubs including Stellenbosch FC and Chippa United.

Despite signing with Masandawana, he had limited game time, featuring in just one match for the club.

Talks of a Permanent Move

Mike Makaab, speaking on behalf of Mobbie, confirmed ongoing discussions about a potential permanent transfer away from Mamelodi Sundowns.

Despite having two years left on his current contract, the 29-year-old defender seems poised to make a permanent move during the current transfer window.

According to Makaab, negotiations are progressing, hinting at a significant change for Mobbie in the upcoming season.

Sundowns’ Strategic Changes

In the midst of these developments, Mamelodi Sundowns have been undergoing significant changes ahead of the new season.

The club recently parted ways with head coach Rulani Mokwena, despite having three years remaining on his contract.

In his place, Steve Komphela has returned as senior coach to support Manqoba Mngqithi and the technical team.

Additionally, Sundowns have also released several players including Bongani Zungu, Brian Onyango, Gaston Sirino, and Thabiso Kutumela, who has already secured a move to Richards Bay FC.


Nyiko Mobbie’s potential departure from Mamelodi Sundowns marks a pivotal moment in his career, signaling a new chapter ahead.

As negotiations for a permanent move unfold, his journey continues to be closely followed, highlighting his resilience and impact both domestically and internationally.
