Masandawana have big decisions to make with some of their stars' current deals set to expire at the end of this term

When the PSL transfer window opens on January 1, some of Mamelodi Sundowns players' contracts will be entering their final six months.
Therefore, the Tshwane giants' management and technical team will have big decisions to make regarding the future of their players.
GOAL takes a look at the six Sundowns players whose contracts will expire at the end of June 2023:

  • Reyaad Pieterse, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    In June this year, Masandawana triggered an option to renew the towering goalkeeper's contract for another season.
    The arrival of Ronwen Williams at Sundowns has since pushed Pieterse down the pecking order in the goalkeeping department and the 30-year-old is now the third-choice keeper. 

  • Bradley Ralani, Mamelodi Sundowns, March 2022

    The 35-year-old veteran made his way to the Tshwane giants from Cape Town City in January this year after he signed an 18-month deal, with a one-year option to extend.
    Sundowns are yet to trigger the option and the ageing winger has been used as a bit part player this term having made just five appearances in the PSL all coming as a substitute.

  • Andile Jali, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2022

    Andile Jali

    The reigning PSL Midfielder of the Season signed a five-year deal when he moved to the Chloorkop giants from Belgian side KV Oostende in 2018.

    Jali, 32, is one of Sundowns' most influential players, but the club has allowed his deal to enter its final seven months and he has been linked with Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

  • Brian Mandela, Mamelodi Sundowns, February 2022

    The Kenya international was snapped up by Masandawana in 2020 on a three-year deal with a two-year option as the club began life without coach Pitso Mosimane.
    Mandela will be hoping that Sundowns take up the option as the 28-year-old defender had a successful 2021-22 season and he has also started whenever he is match fit this term.

  • Haashim Domingo, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2022

    Haashim Domingo

    The Cape Town-born playmaker is another player who joined the Tshwane giants on a three-year deal with a two-year option in 2020 after parting ways with Bidvest Wits.
    Domingo has been a regular for the PSL champions this season and the 27-year-old will be hoping to have done enough to get a contract extension. 

  • Denis Onyango, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021

    Denis Onyango

    The Sundowns legend signed a four-and-a-half year deal in February 2019 when he was at the top of his game as the club's first-choice goalkeeper.
    That deal is set to expire at the end of the season and the 38-year-old is now serving as the second-choice keeper behind Williams.
