There was a dramatic twist to Dikgang "Terminator" Mabalane's pending move to Brondby FI in Denmark when Jomo Cosmos insisted he will join Mamelodi Sundowns instead.
An infuriated Jomo Sono, Cosmos' owner, was reacting to yesterday's story in Sowetan where Mabalane's business manager, Thabo Moloto, said the deal with the Danish club was done.
Sono also denied that Mabalane's contract would expire at the end of this month, saying the midfielder is contracted to them until 2010.
Sono said Mabalane's contract gives Cosmos another two-year option on his services and that Mabalane had taken a substantial amount of money from Ezenkosi to that effect, just before the end of the season.
In the story, Moloto said the only thing remaining was for Mabalane to go for medical tests in Copenhagen on June 30.

Sono also announced that he would challenge defender Morgan Gould's move to SuperSport United, saying Cosmos were not involved in the deal.
He said Gould had signed a further three-year deal with Cosmos.
"The Anthony Laffor issue of signing a pre-contract with United opened our eyes and we are no longer going to be caught napping on such deals," said Sono.
