Thindwa is the current leading scorer in the TNM Super League with 18 goals while Simkonda has bagged in 16.
Flames legend Ernest Ã¢â‚¬ËœWireÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Mtawali, who works as a scout for Sundowns, is reported to have recommended the two players to the Pretoria-based outfit.
According to a well-placed source, Sundowns only want to try one of the two players and its technical staff was still deciding on who to invite.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Both players have been spoken to, but it would appear Sundowns want to invite only one player and they are still making inquiries on the two players,Ã¢â‚¬Â said the source.
But Mtawali refused to comment on the issue on Monday.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The issue is in the hands of my bosses and I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think it will be proper for me to comment. If everything is finalised, you will hear,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Mtawali from Johannesburg on Monday.
Thindwa and his club director Dean Josiah-Banda confirmed having been contacted by Sundowns.
Said Josiah: Ã¢â‚¬Å“There is indeed interest, but we are still waiting for official communication from the club.Ã¢â‚¬Â
On his part, Thindwa told The Nation that he is supposed to leave the country tomorrow.
MoyaleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s coach Nicholas Mhango said the club also received official communication from Sundowns last week.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They wanted the player to leave on Friday but the timing was too short for Gastin to prepare for the trip. So, we asked for a bit of time,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Mhango.
This is in contrast to what Simkonda told the media last week that he was not aware of the development.
