Mamelodi Sundows midfielder Sammy Seabi completes season long loan move to Swallows FC

Sammy Seabi has finally completed a season-long loan move from Mamelodi Sundowns to Swallows FC according to latest release from the Premier Soccer League giants.

The ABSA Premiership Champions have lifted last season’s league and still knee making adjustments to the setup for the next term.

As it stands now, former boss and five-time PSL winner Pitso Mosimane has joined African giants Al Ahly while the Brazilians have announced Manqoba Mngqithi & Rhulani Mokwena as Mosimane’s replacement.

Besides, Kermit Erasmus and Aubrey Modiba from SuperSport United have been added to Sundowns’ ranks with much more top talents expected to join Downs before start of the South African 2020/2021 football season.

With few especially those who have struggled to find regular football at Lucas “Masterpieces” Moripe Stadium expected to depart however, Seabi appears the latest one to be shown the exit door but only on temporal basis.

That is the former Polokwane City man has been allowed to seek regular game time elsewhere after struggling to break into the Brazilians starting line-up

The news of Seabi moving to the Swallows FC surfaced earlier this week but no official comment was made by either clubs.

Sundowns took to their social media platforms to confirm Seabi’s season-long loan deal with the Dobsonville-based outfit on Thursday morning.

Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows have reached an agreement on a season-long loan deal for midfielder Sammy Seabi.

The 25-year-old was signed from Polokwane City at the start of the season and he was converted into a defender by Pitso Mosimane as competition for places in midfield became tougher.

Players such as Hlompho Kekana, Tiyani Mabunda and Rivaldo Coetzee made it difficult for Mosimane to accommodate Seabi but he had to make a plan to give him minutes.

And in his new role as a defender, the lanky player managed just five appearances across all competitions.

Seabi can now look forward to returning to his natural midfield position at Swallows who are assembling a squad of experienced players for their return to top-flight football.

The former Rise and Shine man becomes a second player to be loaned out by the Tshwane giants this week after Aubrey Ngoma rejoined Cape Town City until the end of the season.

Their departures from the Brazilians come on the back of 10 new signings brought ahead of the upcoming campaign, and the chances of the duo cementing their places in the starting line-up became non-existent.

The acquisition of Mothibi Mvala from Highlands Park forced both Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena to sacrifice Seabi who’s real potential hasn’t been seen since his arrival to Chloorkop.

Ngoma, on the other hand, had to make way for Aubrey Modiba who joined the club from SuperSport United.

Both Seabi and Ngoma will hope things turn out differently for them at their respective clubs so that Sundowns can take them back when their loan deals expire.

The duo still has running contracts with the Brazilians until the end of June 2023.
