Denis Onyango will most likely leave Sundowns following the acquisition of Mweene, with a variety of clubs showing interest in the Ugandan's services.

Pitso Mosimane is currently trying to rebuild the team which failed to finish in the top 8 of the PSL last season. He is targeting more high-profile signings and will unveil Maritzburg United's Cuthbert Malajila in the new season according to the Sowetan.
