18 year old defender Siyanda Xulu (pronounced “Koo-loo”) is currently on trial with Arsenal.
After turning professional with heavyweights Kaiser Chiefs, his current club Mamelodi Sundowns maintain a relatively prestigious career for the youngster.
Mamelodi could be considered the Chelsea of the South African Premier League since they are owned by billionaire mining magnate Patrice Motsepe, and have experienced considerable success in recent years
Evidently though, Xulu wants much, much more…
Alex Shakoane, Manager of Communications at Mamelodi Sundowns, had only this to say:
“It is satisfying for us that the young man is being acknowledged and pursued by such esteemed teams.
“If Arsenal are happy with him talks will open between the parties involved.”
