Mamelodi Sundowns have shipped out midfielder Luvuyo Phewa and defender Nyiko Mobbie on loan to Chippa United for the remainder of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season.
Phewa failed to make any appearances for Sundowns this season under co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi, Steve Komphela and Rulani Mokwena, the coaching trio who took over from now Al Ahly mentor Pitso Mosimane, while Mobbie was given a run in the MTN8 against Bloemfontein Celtic.
Mobbie and Phewa have also been sent on loan to get game time as competition for places at Chloorkop is fierce.
The Chilli Boys confirmed on Wednesday that both players have already begun training with the team.
“Chippa United are proud to announce the signing of two players, right-back Nyiko Mobbie and midfielder Luvuyo Phewa – in this transfer window period,” read a statement from the club.
“The duo is on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns for the remainder of this 2020/21 Premier Soccer League football season. They have both officially began training with the Chilli Boys.
Meanwhile, Chippa coach Lehlohonolo Seema, said: “I am excited to have both Nyiko and Luvuyo being added to our squad, where I strongly believe they will contribute massively to this team,” he said.
