The Flames attacking midfielder, Robin Ngalande, might be on his way out of South Africa’s Baroka FC in the next transfer window, his Manager, Paul Mitchel of Siyavuma Sports Group has hinted.
Reports in South African media on Tuesday suggested that Ngalande was released by the club, just one year into a three-year contract.
But Mitchel yesterday said his client was still with Baroka.
“He is with Baroka but may move in the transfer window. Obviously,” Mitchel said in a written response.
South Africa soccer publication www.Kick- Off.com also reported that Ngalande has attracted interest from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) giants, TP Mazembe.
However, Mitchel dismissed the reports, saying there were no discussions with the DRC giants.
“There is none and it won’t be,” he added.
The former Atletico Madrid Academy and Mamelodi Sundowns player made 26 appearances in all competitions during the just -ended season, scoring three goals and two assists for Baroka.
Ngalande has never settled, having played for clubs such as Bidvest Wits, Platinum Stars and Ajax Cape Town.
Former Flames striker, Andrew Chikhosi, said Ngalande was still one of the most talented footballers in the country.
“He has the qualities to play for a big team,” Chikhosi said.
Ngalande joined Baroka on a three-year deal, having spent five months at struggling TNM Super League side, Masters Security FC, where he scored five goals in 2017.
