  • Brazilians Allow Six Players to Go
  • Who Else Could Join Downs’ Squad?

The 24-year-old played for Platinum Stars and Bidvest Wits in the DSTV Premiership before six seasons in Portugal. 

The speedy winger was handed his sole cap for Bafana Bafana by coach Hugo Broos in September 2023 against Namibia. His acquisition is the first arrival since head coach Rhulani Mokwena was sacked by Sundowns. 

Brazilians Allow Six Players to Go

Amid a major revamp of their playing and coaching staff, Sundowns have allowed six players to move onto new pastures. 

Central defender Brian Onyango and midfielder Bongani Zungu came to the end of their contracts. Sundowns’ sporting director Flemming Berg agreed to settlements for forwards Abubeker Nasir, Thabiso Kutumela and Gaston Sirino.

The final confirmed departure is that of Argentine winger Junior Mendieta, who joined Greek club, Volos FC.

Who Else Could Join Downs’ Squad?

Several more signings are tipped to arrive at the Chloorkop-based club. SuperSport United defender Kegan Johannes and Stellenbosch FC playmaker Jayden Adams are the two main targets. 

Decisions will also need to be made over the futures of at least six loanees. Forwards Etiosa Ighodaro and Thabang Sibanyoni are expected to find new loans. 

Defenders Nyiko Mobbie, Nicholus Lukhubeni, Siyanda Msani and Malebogo Modise are all back from loan and face uncertain futures. Left back Sifiso Ngobeni is close to joining AmaZulu.
