Another loan spell on the cards for Sundowns’ Phewa? Agent provides update

Prosport International CEO Mike Makaab has provided an update on Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Luvuyo Phewa’s possible loan move ahead of the 2024/25 DStv Premiership season.

The attacking midfielder spent the previous campaign on a season-long loan at Cape Town Spurs. This was Phewa’s second loan stint at CT Spurs after spending the 202/23 season with the club.

Phewa was part of the CT Spurs squad that gained promotion to the SA’s top-flight at the start of last season. After one season in the Premiership, CT Spurs were relegated back to the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

The Urban Warriors won six matches in the league, drew five, and lost 19 times in 30 games. They collected 23 points, which was not enough to save their status.

Meanwhile, Luvuyo Phewa made 19 appearances across all competitions. He scored one goal and provided three assists. The talented midfielder missed a handful of CT Spurs matches as he was troubled by injuries for most of the 2023/24 season.

Phewa joined the Brazilians in 2020 from the then-second-tier side Real Kings, and he’s yet to feature for the club.

The former SA’s junior international had loan stints with Chippa United and AmaTuks between 2020 and 2022 before his two successive loan spells with CT Spurs.

WHAT DID MIKE MAKAAB SAY ABOUT ABOUT LUVUYO PHEWA?

Phewa returned to Sundowns for pre-season following the expiry of his loan deal at the relegated CT Spurs.

While his agent, Mike Makaab, doesn’t rule out the possibility of going out on loan, he says the 24-year-old will remain with Downs, at least for now.

“It’s highly unlikely that Phewa will return to Cape Town Spurs. At this point, he will probably stay with Sundowns.” Makaab told FARPost.

Phewa faces tough competition in the attacking midfield position from players such as Themba Zwane, Thembinkosi Lorch, Matias Esquivel, Siyabonga Mabena, Tashreeq Matthews, Lebogang Maboe, Neo Maema and newly-signed Kobamelo Kodisang.
