Overseas Interest Pouring In For Sekhukhune Talent

Sekhukhune United have received enquiries from FCSB and FC Sheriff for the services of teenage defender Asekho Tiwani.

Tiwani, 19, has long been touted for a breakthrough in the DStv Premiership and it finally arrived this campaign upon the arrival of Lehlohonolo Seema after previously training with the first team under Brandon Truter and Kaitano Tembo.

iDiski Times has it on good authority that the two European clubs have reached out Babina Noko via Leonid Istrati, who facilitated Siyabonga Ngezana’s move to Europe, to enquire about his availability.

Sekhukhune’s hierarchy are open to the sale, and will not stand in the players’ way by looking to price him out of a dream move to Europe.

Tiwani has been one of the breakout players in the league this season, featuring 16 times in the first team with two goals and one assist from his left-back position and is in contention for the DStv Premeirship Goal of the Season at the 2023/24 PSL Awards.

He also was part of the most recent South Africa U20 training squad which is preparing for the upcoming U20 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

Sheriff were one of the clubs who tabled a concrete offer to Kaizer Chiefs for Ngezana before his eventual move to Romania, where he’s now won the Superliga title and helped the club return back to the UEFA Champions League qualifying rounds.
