Just days after Richards Bay FC issued a warning to clubs attempting to poach star goalkeeper Salim Magoola, it has emerged that the Ugandan is on the radar of TP Mazembe and Singida Fountain Gate.

The 28-year-old is one of the best goalkeepers in the DStv Premiership and came close to joining Kaizer Chiefs. However, Amakhosi seem to have cooled down interest in the talented goalkeeper.

But, the former Pretoria Callies shot-stopper is now wanted by the DR Congo side, TP Mazembe, and Tanzania’s Singida.

After a stellar 2022/23 season, Magoola was named among the best goalkeepers of the 2022/2023 season. The award was deservedly won by Mamelodi Sundowns’ goalie Ronwen Williams.

His impressive 14 clean sheets in 38 games for the Natal Rich Boyz have caught the interest of African sides.

“TP Mazembe are one of the clubs interesting in Magoola, but there’s also interest from Tanzania. Singida are big admirers of the goalkeeper,” a source told SN24.

The KZN outfit said clubs chasing his signature needed to go about it correctly. Magoola’s contract with Richards Bay expires at the end of the season, and the club wants any potential suitor to engage them.

The club can extend Magoola’s contract when it comes to an end, hence that approach. 

“Richards Bay Football Club would like to raise a serious concern with the conduct of certain clubs in the Premier Soccer League and African continent leagues approaching our goalkeeper, Salim Magoola,” the club statement read.

“As the club, we view this as total disrespect and unprofessional conduct by these clubs. Salim Magoola remains a Richards Bay FC player with a long-standing contract.

“The clubs knows very well that, they should be interested, proper channels should be followed, and these should not be done through social media or directly with the player concerned.

It remains to be seen whether the club will hold onto Magoola, with indications that he has set his sights elsewhere.

“The club would further like to request those engaging in this unprofessional conduct to stop or follow proper procedures as we deem this a serious plot against Richards Bay Football Club.”
