Teboho Mokoena no closer to signing new Sundowns deal – agent

Teboho Mokoena is nowhere closer to signing a new Mamelodi Sundowns contract, according to his agent Glynn Binkin.

Binkin was speaking to SABC Sport in an attempt to set the record straight after reports emerged that the two parties had finalised the negotiations.

Sundowns are eager to tie down Mokoena to a new and improved deal which will be long-term in order to fend off interest from abroad.

Mokoena has been the subject of interest from a number of clubs in and outside of the African continent since the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

And while those rumours have gone on and on, there appears to be nothing concrete tabled, and Sundowns are happy to keep him longer at the club.

Mokoena’s current deal expires in June 2026, and while Sundowns still have plenty of time to negotiate with him, they just don’t want to lose him for peanuts.

It looks like the issue of a buy-out clause coupled with an improved salary package are what caused the standoff between Mokoena and Sundowns.

Now, Binkin said he has tried by all means to avoid talking about the Mokoena negotiations in the media out of respect for Sundowns.

However, he felt compelled to do so now that incorrect information has been circulated in the local media.

And while Binkin said they are nowhere close to sealing the deal, he is hopeful that Sundowns will present a revised offer for Mokoena.


“We were rather surprised and disappointed to read in the media, reports emanating from sources close to Sundowns that discussions between the parties in respect of a new deal are on track and we are close to finalising such a deal,” said Binkin. 

“We have purposely stayed out of the media out of respect to Sundowns and the sensitivity around the negotiations, but feel it necessary to correct what has been said and written, and therefore set the record straight so as not to mislead anyone.” 

“We have been in discussions and negotiations since November, and sadly are no closer to finalising a new deal, which has led to a lot of frustration and disappointment for both myself and my client in this regard,” added Binkin. 

“However, we are hopeful the club will present a revised offer, which will bring this to finality and in the best interests of all concerned, so that the player can continue producing Man of the Match performances for Sundowns for years to come.”


Mokoena, who’s also a Bafana Bafana international, has been a stalwart for Sundowns since his arrival from SuperSport United two seasons ago.

He’s won two league titles and the African Super League (AFL), and has been to two CAF Champions League semi-finals with Sundowns.
